    The Cedar Key Safety Patrol trip to Washington, D.C. was a huge success. Students and chaperones spent three days touring our nation’s capital with schools from Bronson, Yankeetown, Williston and Chiefland. A highlight of the trip was eating out at the buffets and no one went hungry!

    We began our tour with a group picture at Grant’s Memorial which is presently being restored, along with the Capitol and the Supreme Court building. It seems all of Washington is preparing for the 2016 Inauguration early.
