Shirley Plantation on the James | Lunch at Upper Shirley Vineyards
Thurs, Nov 15 | 9:30 AM – 2:30 PM | Cost: $40 | Limited to 20

Join us as we visit Shirley Plantation sitting on a bluff overlooking the James River.  Encompassing over 700 riverfront acres, Shirley is considered an architectural treasure.  We will have a guided tour of the Great House, which will include stories of the Hill Carter Family members who have lived at Shirley for 12 generations.  We will have time to look around the grounds, gardens and outbuildings as well as the Gift Shop.  We will then have a delicious lunch at Upper Shirley Vineyards nestled alongside the James with breathtaking views of the Presquile National Wildlife Refuge, a 1,329-acre island bird sanctuary.

Register, select your lunch option and pay $40 at the Rec Center by Nov 7.
