Celebrating the Magna Charta – April 11, 2015 - DC
The 2015 Reception and Dinner of the National Society Magna Charta Dames and
Barons will be held, Saturday, April 11, 2015 at the University Club,
1135-16th Street, N.W., Washington, D.C.
“Living the 800th Anniversary of the Sealing of Magna Charta”
We describe the path from the launch of the 800TH
Anniversary at Runnymede in 2010 to many events leading to plans for the
Anniversary when we anticipate 200 representatives at the field of
Runnymede. We may include some brief video clips. With the clarity and
quality of the video you can experience the launch event and the events
leading up to the 2015 –as a reminder this will introduce a small portion of
our video which can be used by teachers in their classrooms – without cost
to them – a program of our Society where we can really make a difference.
Now we turn to the legacy of the 800th and look to our members
for suggestions, especially for their communities and local educational
institutions, for the programs which will memorialize 800 years of Magna
We encourage our members and non-members to send us their written ideas and
visions of the legacy of the 800th. We will summarize the ideas
in a report at the dinner and if there are exceptionally creative ideas or
exceptionally prominent advocates for the celebration (with creative ideas),
we plan to invite their presentation. We are mindful of time limitations for
presentations, but we also provide a reminder that the audience for the
dinner is far beyond the lucky few who subscribe to the dinner. Thanks to
the internet, it extends worldwide and into the future.
Reception will begin at 5:30PM and the Dinner will begin at 7:00PM. The cost
of the reception and dinner will be $125.00 and the cost for the reception
without the dinner is $50.00, each with a cash bar. Reservations are
required and limited. Black Tie is optional. Amounts contributed in excess
of the cost of the dinner are deductible as charitable contributions. An
additional charge of $10.00 per person is required for payment at the door.
