|50 Plus Plans Apple Orchard Outing on Aug. 29|
Obtaining fresh air and apples is the goal of an outing being offered by the 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park and Recreation District in late August.
The program is called An Apple a Day and will take place on Aug. 29. Participants will visit Fieldstone's Apple Orchard in Overbrook, Kan., west of Baldwin City, to pick apples. Lunch will take place at Conrad's in Overbrook (on your own). This will be the fourth year for this popular early fall outing. Search for the keyword "outdoors" to find this program in the JCPRD's Activities Catalog and online listings.
This program will leave from Antioch Park, 6501 Antioch, Merriam, at 9 a.m. The cost for one five-hour outing, including transportation, is $15 per person for Johnson County residents or $16 for nonresidents.
While the JCPRD's 50 Plus programs are primarily for people who are age 50 or older, interested parties who have not yet reached that magic age may still be able to attend. Persons 18 and older who are interested in a 50 Plus class are invited to call the District's Registration Department at (913) 831-3359, and if space is available without forfeiting the place of a person over 50, their registration can be taken.
The JCPRD's ACTIVITIES catalog, with information and a registration form, is available for pick-up at all Johnson County Library branches. For more information or to register, call (913) 831-3359. To register online and for updated program listings, visit the District's website at www.jcprd.com
