|Fantastic Fall Festival Day Trip for 50 Plus is Oct. 5|
The trip is called Fantastic Fall Festival. Participants will travel to Louisburg, Kansas, to visit the Louisburg Cider Mill where they can sample delicious homemade cider doughnuts, old-fashioned apple cider, or Lost Trail Root Beer as well as shop in the old country store and take a wagon ride in the autumn air. Lunch will be at the famous Hillsdale (Kan.) Bank Bar-B-Que restaurant. The next stop is Pome on the Range Orchards and Winery near Williamsburg, Kansas, southwest of Ottawa. Travelers can pick a complimentary pumpkin or some apples to take home and then stop in their marketplace for a variety of seasonal vegetables and products ranging from nuts, honey, muffin mixes, and sauces. To find this program in the JCPRD’s Activities catalog and online listings, browse first under 50 Plus and then under travel.

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 www.jcprd.com.
