2019 Annual Meeting Philadephia Excursion

Academy Members experienced The National Constitution Center in “Center City” Philadelphia.

Members learned the story of “We the People” and were inspired by the Constitution’s legacy of freedom.

Travel arrangments were also made to visit Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul, the mother church of the
Archdiocese of Philadelphia.
