As much as I enjoy the winter holiday season, I’m always ready to get a fresh start in the new year.  There are several RMA events and activities to look forward to in the early months of 2017.  Our museum trips take you  to a variety of destinations throughout Southern California in a comfortable motor coach with all the arrangements made for you.  Send in your reservation and a check and then show up at the Heritage House on the morning of the trip to be whisked away for a day of adventure and learning!  The Wednesday, February 8th trip to the Peterson Automotive Museum in Los Angeles will be a fun day spent in a remarkable newly renovated building. On March 16th (a Thursday) we will travel to Palm Springs to visit the Moorten Botanical Garden and Cactarium and the Palm Springs Art Museum.  Now how many people can say they’ve been to a cactarium?  Join us and you can lay claim to that distinction!

I’m also looking forward to the next RMA Lecture Series event:  a tour and history of the First Congregational Church on Mission Inn Avenue.  This church is the Museum’s next-door neighbor and has an fascinating history.  Our “out and about” visit to the church will take place on Wednesday, February 1st at 10 a.m.  We even provide refreshments and a social time starting at 9:30 a.m.   The lectures are always free and open to the public.  Check out the Events section for more information about  these and other upcoming RMA activities.  Make 2017 a year of adventure with the RMA!
