On April 16th, GRAACA members got the chance to get out for a little spring fun. This year’s tour took us through some beautiful parts of Cumberland County as well as the orchards of Adams and Franklin Counties.

The day beganĀ at the American Legion Post #674 in Mount Holly Springs for some doughnuts and coffee before heading out.

The first stop was Mr. Ed’s Elephant Museum, an absolute “must see” roadside attraction offering candy and fresh roasted peanuts (of course!) in addition to the estimated 12,000 elephants on display. The museum also lays claim to the East Coast’s largest collection of Pez dispensers.

After another scenic drive, we got to stretch our legs at the PA Forest Fire Museum in Caledonia State Park. Afterwards, it was onto Solomon’s Lutheran Church for an absolutely fabulous homemade buffet!
