Posted on Aug 07 2022 in Bartholomew County REMC

This June, Bartholomew County REMC was honored to sponsor two Columbus East High School students, Owen Hebert and Mason Whipker on a trip to Washington, D.C., as part of the Indiana Youth Tour. 

Youth Tour is a weeklong experience that allows students to visit historical monuments and museums, meet with Indiana’s congressional delegation on Capitol Hill, make lifelong friends, and much more.

Students visited the Flight 93 Memorial, Gettysburg battlefield, Arlington National Cemetery, Mount Vernon, Marine Corps Museum, and U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum.They also toured the National Mall memorials.

Here are some photos from the trip:
