Western NY 2012 tour report

August took us to New York to the Bakers’ homestead. Our first stop Saturday was a candy shop with a huge variety of candy. Some were even spotted having ice cream. We then toured along passing the infamous Attica Prison and on to the Hidden Valley Animal Adventure which was a 60 acre park with over 200 animals and 30 exotic species, all roaming about. We were taken on a one hour wagon ride through the park to see these many varieties of animals. Some even got mud splattered on them by the water buffalo who ventured out of their mud hole to beg for treats.

Kingston 2012 tour report

We had a great week-long tour of the Kingston area hosted by the Furlong and Stapley families. It was a real success thanks to our hosts and other volunteers, including those that helped plan the daily tours and those that helped with the campground events.

Fergus 2012 tour report

Our touring season continues with the June tour out of the Fergus area hosted by the Knowles family. Saturday’s tour took us to Alma and a tour of the Husky Farm Equipment facility. This company was started by Ray Grose who made a snowthrower for himself. A neighbour wanted to buy it and the business was born. They just celebrated 50 years in business. They also do laser cutting but the machine was just not co-operating for us to see it in action. We then went to Noonan’s Antiques and then on to Arthur for lunch.
