Bonchek House took a busload of 45 people to Philadelphia on Jan. 20, 2013. Twenty of us got a special tour of the Franklin Institute and the TItanic exhibition from Dennis Wint, director of the FI and F&M P'16. Others went to the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Eastern State Penitentiary, the Academy of Natural Sciences, and the The Mütter Museum of the College of Physicians. The bus was paid for by Bonchek House Congress, and Prof. Sternberg subsidized museum admission costs.
Bonchek and Brooks House co-sponsored an old-timey contra dance on March 23, with caller Andrew Bishop, and live music provided by the Gooseberries. Apple-based refreshments were served. A good time was had by all (except that one young guy with three left feet).
