Bus trip to Canton, Ohio


Such a fun filled day for all!  The bus departed from Duquesne campus early in the morning.  We arrived at MULLIGAN'S a beautiful Irish Pub/Restaurant.   The restaurant was amazing.   Many resotration items added to the decor,  old chuch pews that created booths, an incredible mantle in one of the banquet rooms rescued from demolition was breathtaking with it's carved wood and marble hearth, one felt the need to just wander around and take in some of the old world beauty.   

Lunch was delicious and desert mmmm the best!  

After lunch guests were entertained by Mary Faktor who presented her one lady show "The Six Stages of Woman".   She was hilarious and actually had some of the "women" in the crowd in tears with laughter! 


After the entertainment the group went on a tour of the Canton area.  The highlight of the tour was a visit to President McKinley's memorial.   We were all surprised at the size and beauty of the structure.   The grounds surrounding the memorial were peaceful and serene.   Quite a moving experience.

It was a great trip for all!
