Meeting every 3rd Tuesday for over 59 yrs

Bus Tours - Events - Swap Meets & Car Shows

Typically the third Saturday of October we grace the trees with the finest of fall colors...

Fall Color Tour

Each year a dedicated club member creates a route that is sure to inspire!! This is an all day event with several stops. Maybe it is to tour a small museum, an orchard, or a covered bridge.

Each stop gives club members a chance to trade tips, tell stories and to find out.... Hey who got lost or Who broke down...

And finally a grand meal... We swamp a restaurant with laughter
