Here's a report from the group​'​​​​​​s recent trip to the Booth Western Art Museum:

Eighteen of us spent election day with L'Chaim at the Booth Western Art Museum in Cartersville.  Besides the excellent permanent collection of the museum, we enjoyed the travelling exhibit of sculpture and paintings by Frederic Remington.  It's not often that you can see a large number of Remington's work, all in one place -- especially his graphic art.

The museum provided a docent for our group.  We received an interpretive tour of the permanent collection, and then we had an informal tour of the Remington collection, with questions and answers with the curator.  

Originally worried about rain, we had beautiful fall weather.  And everyone had either voted beforehand or voted upon returning to Atlanta.

And on L'Chaim's summer outing hiking on one of Atlanta's many Intown trails:

L'Chaim, our 55+ group, did a gentle hike through Emory's Lullwater Preserve on Sunday, August 26.  It was a beautiful day for walking, and most of the students had either not gotten to campus yet, or had not woken up.

Highlights of the walk, other than the spirited conversation ranging from travel tips to political observations, included turtles sunning themselves on a piece of driftwood, the long suspension bridge over Peachtree Creek, the many butterflies, and the serenity of both the lake and the creek as we passed.

Ten people participated in the walk.  Be sure to watch for the hike on next summer's schedule.  It's a good opportunity to get to know others in the age group.
