The Limestone Society's Emberton family visited Virginia for their family vacation during the week of June 5-9, 2017. Here they are shown with a bust of President James Monroe which is located on the grounds of his home, close to Charlottesville, Virginia.
We look forward to learning more about their visit to Highland since President Monroe is the focus of the 2017-2018 National Project.
MEMBER CHALLENGE: Look up a fact about James Monroe and email this to your senior society president at [email protected]
