Fall Day Trip


For the fall excursion Jimmy the Cricket will take us to Kentucky to first visit South Union Shaker Village.  We will explore and learn about this very unique culture and be guided on a special tour of this remarkable estate.  We will then gather next door to visit the Chapel of Divine Mercy and learn about this surprising Roman Catholic mission that occupies former Shaker properties.  We will get to see the newly built monumental church surrounded by pastoral corn fields.  Enjoy a delicious lunch at The Shaker Tavern and have an entertaining speaker join us for this private event.  From there we investigate the lovely countryside and head to Chaney's Dairy Barn to see an old family-owned operation which thrives to this day. This will include a superb tour of the state-of-the-art facility and, of course, a stop for their incredible selection of homemade ice-cream.  Come be with us for this wonderful, historic and educational sampler tour of a little-known area so close to Nashville!
