Security Information

As we discussed in our meeting last week, our group will go through security checkpoints at many of the places we visit next week.  Two links are listed below for planning purposes.

The White House: https://www.whitehouse.gov/participate/tours-and-events

The US Capitol: https://www.visitthecapitol.gov/plan-visit/prohibited-items

Remember, less is more!  The less you have, the quicker you (and our group) will move through security checkpoints.
