Spend time exploring Fort Worth just west of Irving. (It was Will Rogers who said, "Fort Worth is where the West begins and Dallas is where the East peters out.") We will drive through the cultural district on our way to the National Cowgirl Hall of Fame! It showcases women who "soared" in their own way in their own time--all to tame the West. The museum has everything from a Bucking Bronco to photographs and short video presentations that will inform and make you smile!
After the Museum, it’s off to the Old Stockyards area where you can have your picture made with a friendly longhorn and watch a herd of steer meander down the street to the Stockyards museum. At this time, you will have chance to have lunch (not included in the price) at one of the area restaurants (we will have suggestions). We'll see a lot but take it easy as we go! www.fortworthstockyards.org/
Take this opportunity to meet with students and explore YOUR archives at Texas Woman’s University. Upon arrival at the TWU library you are welcome to join a group of TWU history students and share with them your experiences during the WASP. Or if you’d rather, you may head upstairs to the Woman’s Collection where you can walk through step-by-step how to donate your papers and then what becomes of them once they arrive at TWU.
This is your chance to see how important your collection has become to researchers, scholars and students and how well-cared for your materials are once they become a part of the WASP archive. We have time built in to see the archives whether you meet with students or not. Then we will take a very brief walk (or golf cart ride) to a lovely lunch in Hubbard Hall, adjacent to the library. www.twu.edu/library/wasp/index.htm

Spend a morning exploring the Frontiers of Flight Museum at Love Field, home of the 5th Ferrying Group during World War II. The Museum has a WASP exhibit. After having a chance to explore the museum, you will have the opportunity to talk with museum guests about your WASP experiences. We will have a nice lunch on the Mezzanine, overlooking the planes. Frontiers has promised they will have at least one AT-6 Texan available for some good reminiscing. Check them out at: www.flightmuseum.com
