After leading 32 tours of Washington, DC, and working at the National Archives as an education specialist for six years, former Albion resident Dave Rosenbaum has lots of favorite places there, “… but Mount Vernon is #1 for me,” he said.
His latest tour group of tourists in the nation’s capitol, March 29 – April 3 was “…quite special, with 25 Albion Cardinals included among the group 31,” said Dave.
Most of those Cardinals were his former classmates. “We truly had a wonderful time!,” he said in an email interview.
“We were all Huskers!” declared Sharon Kunzman, AHS graduated and a tour member.
“Dave did such a nice job of making sure we got to all these places,” said Kunzman. “Had we gone without a tour, I don’t think we would have gotten to see a third of what we saw.”
“It was fun to reunite with former classmates we hadn’t seen for awhile,” said Laurie Carder, AHS graduate also on the tour.
Attending the tour guided by Rosenbaum were Julie and Brian Rasmussen, Albion, Margaret Erickson, Lincoln, Mary Staub, Albion, Art and Kaylene Howell, Albion, Susan Lawrence, Lincoln, Marianne Hershey, Lincoln, Laurie Carder, Albion, Ellen and Mike Frey, Albion, Janel Smith, Ashland, Annette Kunzman-Solomon, Manhattan Beach, CA, Hilary Christo, Kearney, Jane and Brad Beckwith, Albion, Sharon Kunzman, Albion, Licia Kunzman, Albion, Randy Christo, Ashland, Tim Christo, Kearney, Karen and Tim Kayton, Albion, Jane and Tom Goering, Grand Island, Barb Oetken, Norfolk, Ashley Oetken, Norfolk, Mary and Philip Heideman, Daykin, Naomi Cunningham, Beatrice, and Linda Spiegel, Albion.
