Transportation will be provided to the dinner. The bus will load at Jefferson Lab at 6:00pm. The dinner will be held from 6:30pm-11:00pm. The bus will depart the Freight Shed at 11:00pm. The bus will return passengers either to Cebaf Center or to their hotels, whichever they prefer.
A gala dinner excursion is planned for Wednesday evening July 18th. Let us transport you back in time to the Historic Yorktown waterfront where, in 1781, British Lord Cornwallis surrendered to General George Washington, ending the American colonists' six-year struggle for independence.
Dinner will be held in the restored Freight Shed alongside the York River. Built in 1935 by the National Park Service after a tropical storm destroyed much of the waterfront, the building was used as a terminal for Baltimore steamships until 1952, when it was remodeled as a post office. The current facility was extensively renovated in 2005.
Historic Yorktown's mile-long pedestrian Riverwalk, and its adjacent two-acre beach, is the perfect place for casual strolling, shell gathering or watching boat traffic on the river.
Dinner tickets, including transportation, are available for purchase through the registration page, for $30/person. Advance payment required. This event is made possible with generous support from the workshop sponsors:
