Members at Peach Tree Farm.
JCSHG attended three fall field trips this year. The first field trip was to Peach Tree Farm in Boonville. Members got to pick a pie pumpkin, feed the farm animals, and play in a stagecoach set up on the property.
Less than two weeks later the group went to Fischer Farms in Jefferson City. We were so happy the farm was able to open after it flooded earlier this year. The group has had a Fischer Farms field trip every year since JCSHG was formed! Members picked out pumpkins, a gourd, played in the corn bins, and enjoyed the corn maze.
Finally, the last field trip of the season was our annual Binder Park hayride and bonfire event. Thirty-one members attended the four-hour event the last week of October. Members roasted various foods over the fire, made s’mores, and enjoyed the warmth of the fire while visiting. Thanks to the McMichael family for planning a Nerf gun war and providing the ammunition.
