Forty-four Lecanto Middle School students traveled by bus to Washington, D.C., last week, accompanied by three chaperons. They saw much during the whirlwind trip, including Mount Vernon, the U.S. Naval Museum, the Smithsonian American History Museum, the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum, the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History, the Capitol and the White House. The group left their school at 5 a.m. June 14 and rode for 15 hours to get to their destination. For a closer look at the group, see Page 3.
