YAH plans to go to the Eckerts Orchard at Grafton, Illinois on Wednesday, September 25, to pick apples. We will meet at church at 8:30 AM and take vans, traveling to Alton and taking the Great River Road to Grafton and the orchard for apple picking. Departing the orchard, we will take the ferry (free) across the Illinois river to Brussels and have lunch (covered by Gateway) at the Wittmond Hotel restaurant, which serves family-style meals. Then we will take the Golden Eagle Ferry (paid for) crossing the Missouri river and return to the church. Deadline for sign-up’s is Sunday, September 22.
