The Adams County Arts Council and Eisenhower National Historic Site staff invites you to Presidential Paint and Wine Night at the Eisenhower Farm on Wednesday, June 20, 4:30-7:30 p.m. The event features an "open house" style tour of the Eisenhower home and a ranger talk about Eisenhower's hobby of oil painting.

The event will be held at Eisenhower National Historic Site on the front lawn overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains. The cost is $50 for ACAC members and $55 for non-members and includes all materials, tour, refreshments and complimentary glass of wine.

Participants will see some of Ike's original works of art on the tour, followed by painting a piece inspired by one of President Eisenhower's original paintings. The students will recreate a piece painted by President Eisenhower of Telegraph Cottage where he stayed during the planning for Operation Overlord. Instructor, Marie Smith, will be on hand with helpful instruction and step by step guidance from start to finish. No experience is necessary.

Pre-registration is required. Call 717 334-5006 or register on-line at:
