According to ACTS conversations with the staff at the Library of Congress, - the LOC tunnel is still closed, and they are not anticipating reopening it for groups to use to get to the Capitol building. As we know things can change. There is also talk that the Supreme Court is planning to reopen sometime in October when the term starts. So far, that is not confirmed and nothing is on their website or official SC news releases yet. We will watch for official news and share that with when we find out. Thanks for being amazing EPLs!

The ACTS Marketing Team would like to create a short promotional video to give to persons interested in our EPL position. The focus of the video is YOU. We would like you to film a short clip highlighting the top three things you love about being an ACTS EPL - what you love, what brings you back. Remember to keep it short. We are all good at talking. This will be the challenge! Anyway, film yourself. Upload the clip(s) in our shared EPL Gallery - there is a light blue box titled "EPL PROMO VIDEO CLIPS" That's the place. Thanks for helping! And if you know anyone interested in being an EPL - send them my way!!! - JAY

We really do not get many pictures any more from GroupTravelVideos/PhotoVision. So... We really appreciate you sending in pictures and videos that we can use in marketing! We have a folder on Dropbox that all of you have been added to with privileges to upload images, etc. Here is a link to the Dropbox: If you are having problems accessing, the folder please let me know. You can even create your own folder within the folder to place your images, or just add them. Here are some ideas of what we are looking for: Short Form Video using your phone Kids talking about what they liked - what they enjoyed at a site. Something interesting to them. Short videos of them walking through monuments Short videos of them walking with recognizable buildings, or memorials in the background. Faces of people (No backs of heads) Smiling and happy Singing on the bus People eating dinner - food - people like food pictures. Shows the type of food the group gets. Make sure it looks appetizing! 🙂 Tavern dinners - historical site / costumed performers Kids interacting with history - clapping/participating Kids interacting They are doing something - walking, praying, laughing Learning Listening to a speaker Talking to a Veteran Walking through World War II and other monuments Reading something Photos Shots of group photos - School, Organization - try not to have school name prominent. Try to protect clients. Kids praying together Have recognizable sites/attractions in the background Funny pictures of kids having fun Parents with their kid Enjoying a monument, speaker, program Goofy Bus Shots Kids in historical costumes (ex. trying on armor at Jamestown or dressing up in WBG) Great sunsets or sunrises - night time monuments... Also, having a visible badge can be great for marketing!

After 2 PM - the tour at Monticello is self-guided. There are QR codes in each room for “more information”. There are also guides in each room but only answer questions if asked. Encourage your students to ask questions if you are not able to be with each group. Anyone else have anything to add?

Caught in the act! There are obvious safety issues that may be at play here, but I appreciate Traci's spirit of jumping in and helping get the luggage out to her group when the belt stopped at BWI and no one came to assist. Thanks for going above and beyond the call of duty Traci!!
