The Ferndale Roadrunners have taken advantage of the spring weather to tour many scenic or historic places.

Members traveled by bus to Lake George and Lake Placid in the Adirondacks, where they visited the site of the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympics, which is now used as a world training center for aspiring athletes.

They also visited the homestead of abolitionist John Brown and visited Lancaster, Pa.

During a trip to Charlottesville, Va., the group enjoyed a country-style lunch at Michie's Tavern and a guided tour of Thomas Jefferson's Monticello.

Their next scheduled event will keep them a little closer to home. Members and associate members will share a covered-dish luncheon at 11 a.m., June 30 at the Ferndale-Linthicum Senior Center.

Line dance classes sponsored by the club are discontinued for the summer months.
