Ark Encounter & Creation Museum Trip - September 2019
Our latest SURE adventure took our group to the ARK Encounter and Creation Museum in Williamstown, Kentucky. Here are a few photos from this tour of discovery and immersion as our tour group walked the same steps as those in Bible stories. The enjoyable two-day trip also included a Riverboat Dinner Cruise on the Ohio River.
Heinz History Center: Destination Moon - November 2018
SURE members enjoyed a day trip to the Heinz History Center which included an informative 90-minute guided tour of Destination Moon: The Apollo 11 Mission, a commemoration of the upcoming 50th anniversary of the day Neil Armstrong became the first human to walk on the Moon. Our group learned how Pittsburgh innovators and companies, including Westinghouse, used their “We Can Do It!” spirit to play a crucial role in the Apollo 11 mission, and discover how the region’s brightest minds continue to impact the space program today. The exhibit on loan from the Smithsonian also featured an immersive “launchpad” entrance, the iconic audio from mission control, and interactives like a lunar lander video game and virtual 3-D tour of Columbia’s interior.
Feed The Hungry - 2018
Now in its 6th year, SURE’S 'Feed the Hungry' program distributed donations in 2018 totaling $13,500 to 9 Food Pantries and 7 Meals on Wheels programs located in southwestern Pennsylvania. Included below are many of the photos taken at several of those agencies receiving SURE donations this past fall. To qualify for a donation in our Feed the Hungry program, each Food Pantry (FP) or Meals on Wheels (MOW) program must have at least one (1) Westinghouse SURE member who currently volunteers with them. For those SURE members interested in volunteering for a MOW or FP program in their area, please contact Wayne Bickerstaff, Feed the Hungry Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We kicked off summer in style with our Sea to Shining Stars excursion into Annapolis and Baltimore. Our travels focused on exploring both under the sea and above the sea at the National Aquarium in Baltimore Harbor. Our group also enjoyed a US Naval Academy cruise in Annapolis.
For the past few years, SURE has made an annual trip to the Big Apple in early December! Here are some photo highlights from our 2018 adventure...
