A book of condolences at the Athenaeum (201 Prince Street) is offering locals an opportunity to add their thoughts or feelings on the passing of Queen Elizabeth II.
The book was put together by the British Officers Club of Washington D.C. to mark the death of Queen Elizabeth II, the longest serving monarch in British history.
Anyone who wishes to write in the book can do so until Saturday at 4 p.m.
Signing times are:
- Wednesday, Sept. 14: 2 p.m. to 7 p.m.
- Thursday, Sept. 15: 2 p.m. to 7 p.m.
- Friday, Sept. 16: noon to 4 p.m.
- Saturday, Sept. 17: noon to 4 p.m.
The Athenaeum is planning to host a short commemoration ceremony at 4 p.m. Saturday when the book of condolences closes.
Another book is being hosted at the British Embassy in D.C. and will be sent to Buckingham Palace to be given to King Charles III.
