Lancaster Trip - August 2022
The Summer of 2022 saw a bus load of happy SURE members set off on another fun-filled Road Trip! On August 23, some 52 Westinghouse SURE travelers boarded a Quest motor coach to begin their journey to Lancaster, PA to see stage presentations of two shows: “David” and “Chicago”. Our first scheduled stop was at the Mount Hope Estate & Winery for lunch, a winery tour and a wine tasting. After the enjoyable lunch/winery visit, our Quest bus driver (Mary) took us on a tour through the nearby Amish farms and beautiful countryside as we journeyed to our hotel. After arriving and checking into the Heritage Hotel in Lancaster, we travelled next door to the Dutch Apple Dinner Theater for dinner and to see our first show - “Chicago”. The show was a spectacular way to end our first day. The next day after breakfast at the hotel, our tour group motored over to the “Sight & Sound Theater” to see “David” – a magnificent stage production focused on bringing to life the legendary Bible story featuring spectacular special effects, massive sets and live animals in a brand-new original stage production. After the show, we then traveled to a popular stop in Lancaster – Miller’s Smorgasbord – where SURE members and guests enjoyed a delicious dinner and many desserts before embarking for home.
Stayed tuned for upcoming trip announcements, and please enjoy a few photos included below.

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.
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.

Heinz History Center: Destination Moon - Nov 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.
