Join Us on a Fall Foliage Bus Trip!

Journey to historic Greene County with the Johnston Senior Advisory Board as they sponsor a fall foliage bus trip! The 50+ group will travel to Jefferson on Wednesday, October 19. They depart from Crown Point Community Center, 6300 Pioneer Parkway, at 8:30 am and will return between 4 and 5 pm. The group will step back in time at the RVB-1875 Historic Furniture Shop and Museum to learn the art of custom furniture.  Then they will ride the elevator to the top of the 168 foot Carillon Bell Tower and take in Iowa’s rural landscape with a “bird’s eye” view. A lunch destination is yet to be determined.  The group will make a final stop at Deal’s Orchard for a hayride and dessert.  The cost per person is $25, which includes motor coach transportation, lunch and all tour fees. Please note that sign up is on Friday, October 7 from 1 to 3 pm, and Monday, October 10 from 10 to 11:30 am at Crown Point.  Each person may only sign up themselves and one guest.  Come join the Johnston Senior Advisory Board for a wonderful scenic fall color tour!
