NCSC Friends Gather On America’s Front Lawn! –
Fellowship, Lunch & Lawn Games – Washington, DC (2 pm – 6 pm)

For more than 200 years, the National Mall has symbolized our nation and its democratic values, which have inspired the world. The National Mall – the great swath of green in the middle of our capital city and stretching from the foot of the United States Capitol to the Potomac River – is the premiere civic and symbolic space in our nation.

NCSC friends will gather for an afternoon of lawn games and enjoy fellowship on the National Mall with views of the U.S. Capitol, Washington Monument, and Lincoln Memorial, from 2:30 – 5:30 pm. Our group will Lyft to the Smithsonian National Museum of American History and gather at a local cafe on the National Mall, where we will order lunch to-go and take to our lawn location to enjoy lunch on picnic blankets.

National Mall and Memorial Parks protect the National Mall and its iconic monuments and memorials and over 1,000 acres of greenspace in Washington, D.C. Click here for more information about the National Mall.

Plan to meet at 2:00 pm in hotel lobby to Uber/Lyft downtown. Lyft cost is around $30 each way, from the hotel to Mall – averaging ~$16 pp round trip for transportation costs. Please come prepared to chip in for your Uber/Lyft ride plus whatever you’ll need for your lunch.

RSVP by September 14th. ($3 reservation fee)
