Heads up:  This nearly annual trip typically fills up quickly so plan early!!!!


We leave Owego Naz around 8:30AM for the trip to Lancaster PA and arrive at our hotel around 2:00PM giving us a few hours to relax and/or take in shopping at the nearby outlet mall. Traditionally we enjoy a great family style meal meal at  Hershey Farms ( all you can eat Grand Smorgasbord including the Soup, Salad, Bread, Potato & Dessert Bars)  capped by the  "Jesus" production at nearby Sight & Sound  ( Sight and Sound - Jesus ), however, your NMI council is currenlty looking into alternative meal/entertainment options.  We travel Saturday morning to Fawn Grove for a day of sorting and packing clothing.  We break up the day with a picnic lunch with the FGCC staff.  We began our return Saturn afternoon (3:00PM-3:30PM) and stop for a quick dinner before arriving back at Owego Naz around 10PM Saturday night.   A whirlwind weekend packed with fun and meaningful activities!
