We have been closely monitoring the situation in Congress pertaining to the Spending Bill and due to the government shutdown that resulted, we have had to postpone the Library of Congress Tour that was scheduled for Saturday, January 20th.
Pursuant to the terms of the Ticket Policy on our Web site, if an event is postponed due to circumstances beyond our control, your ticket amount can be applied towards a future event organized by the International Club of DC. Could you please let us know if you are able to join us for one of the following upcoming tours of the US Capitol, Library of Congress, National Gallery of Art, or would prefer to have a credit on file that can be used towards another event organized by the International Club of DC.
If you have a reservation for the event, we would greatly appreciate it if you could please email us back with your preferred choice and confirm receipt of this email as early as possible. We hardly ever reschedule events and apologize for any inconvenience caused by this postponement but unfortunately, the situation in Congress is beyond our control.
We look forward to welcoming you to an upcoming event. If we can be of any further assistance, please let us know.
