Thursday, May 16, 2019     $95.00 per person

 

A 7 foot bronze statue stands right above the Quecreek Mine Rescue Site.  The Quecreek Mine rescue took place in Somerset County, PA when nine miners were trapped underground for over 77 hours, from July 24 to 28, 2002. All nine miners were rescued.  See the power point presentation explaining how the accident happened and how all nine miners were brought up out of the mine in a capsule 22 inches in diameter.  The museum houses the actual capsule and broken drill bit plus you can see and hear the miners talking about the rescue on their 78 hour timeline.

 

After lunch at the Oakhurst Grill, visit the Flight 93 National Memorial in Shanksville, PA to learn about the 40 passengers and crew of Flight 93 whose actions on September 11, 2001 thwarted the hijacker's plan to fly this plane to a target in Washington, DC, most likely the US Capitol.  It is a place to walk beside their final resting place and honor the extraordinary courage of those who fought back.
