You can participate in and support the charitable activities of the Friends by becoming a member or by making a donation or both.

Members receive newsletters and email notes about upcoming Friends events as well as the opportunity to participate in a wide range of Tavern and Canal activities.

The Friends also hold social events to foster camaraderie and sharing of knowledge about the Historic Great Falls Tavern and the C&O Canal.  These activities include an annual trip to a Canal-related historical location, a summer picnic on the Charles F. Mercer with the C&O Canal Association, British-style pub quizzes, and an annual dinner with a presentation on some aspect of the Canal and/or local history.
