Every Thursday, from 09/07/2017 to 05/31/2018, 10:45 AM - 1:00 PM
Keenagers is a fellowship group sponsored by WMPC and Raleigh Parks and Recreation, and is designed for adults ages 55 plus. Our membership drive is throughout September and there is a $10.00 annual fee to help cover the costs of speakers’ lunches. We meet on Thursdays, September - May. Keenagers begins with an informal coffee and fellowship from 10:15-10:45 a.m. The regular meeting is held from 10:45 a.m.-12:45 p.m. (Come around 10:40 a.m. for good parking as most of our Bible studies dismiss around 10:30 a.m.) Each week we begin with a short business meeting followed by a great program and devotional. At noon, we enjoy a hot meal served by the best cooks in Raleigh! The fee for lunch is $5. Usually the group takes a day trip to a place of interest once a month. We will take an overnight trip in the Spring.

Believed to be the largest exhibit of its kind among state history museums, this exhibit will feature a life-sized replica trench environment with a maze of seven-foot-high walls spread over 6,500 square feet. Hundreds of sandbags line the “earthen” trench, from one illuminated case to the next, and interactive videos and film footage “periscopes” dot the way. There will also be a re-created field hospital, wall-sized photo murals, historical film footage and more than 500 artifacts on display.
