Cherry Blossom Diplomacy and the Festival of Spring
Date(s) - 04/09/2021
10:00 am - 11:00 am
Join Arlington Neighborhood Village, At Home in Alexandria, and Mount Vernon at Home to learn more about the Cherry Blossoms and enjoy the Spring.
Dr. Kathleen Bashian, Certified Master Guide in Washington DC, will present a slide-illustrated program about the Cherry Blossoms in Washington, DC. Did you know that the first gift of friendship from the Japanese to the United States had to be burned because of insects? How did we eventually get the cherry blossoms in DC? Learn how this gift just keeps on giving. Do you know what to look for if you walk about the Tidal Basin with blossoms in bloom? How do we choose the Cherry Blossom Queen and what are her responsibilities?
This is a Zoom event. Registration is required by April 8. Please register on the AHA Hub or by call or email to the AHA office.
