Pooches and Pies day trip set for Sept. 9
POSTED: 08/20/2014
The trip is called Pooches and Pies. Participants will journey to Washington, Kansas, which is located north of Junction City near the Nebraska border. Travelers will first visit the unique Kansas Specialty Dog Service, to learn how service and guide dogs are trained to provide assistance to people with visual or physical disabilities. Following a catered on-site lunch, the group will visit Marcon Pies, home of delicious desserts. Learn how this company went from making pies in the kitchen to selling for restaurants and supermarkets. Bring home a pie or two!

To find this trip in the JCPRD’s Activities catalog and online listings, browse first under 50 plus and then under travel. In the catalog and when using the website’s advanced search, look for the keywords “day trip.”

This trip will leave at 7 a.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 9, from Antioch Park, 6501 Antioch, Merriam, and return at approximately 6 p.m. The cost is $69 per person and includes lunch. Register early as seating is limited.

While 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. For updated program listings, visit the District's website at
