POSTED: 01/25/2012
Chocolates and Coffee is the name of the trip. Participants will start with a visit to Andre's Confiserie Suisse where they will browse an array of homemade chocolate and high-quality confections. A Swiss-style lunch will then be served in the business' tearoom. After lunch, the tour group will stop at The Roasterie for a cup of java and an informative guided tour where they will see how the beans are roasted and coffee is produced. The final stop of this trip will be at Chips Chocolate Factor for an "adventure in chocology" as travelers watch and smell delicious treats being created in front of them. Their will be samples of their famous fudge and a goodie bag of sweet treats to take home. Perform a catalog search for the keyword "day trip" to find this program in the JCPRD's Activities catalog and online listings.

The Chocolates and Coffee Day Trip will leave at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 21, from Antioch Park 6501 Antioch, Merriam, and return at approximately 4:30 p.m. that day. The cost for one six and one-half hour trip is $65 per person and includes lunch.

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 pickup 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
