Pecan Grove Orchard Tour at Green Valley Pecan Co.
The latest Scoop as of March 23rd...
The May 8th tour has been cancelled. The tour has not been rescheduled at this time...
Below are the details of the tour, for when they happen...
The cost is $12 plus tax per person. The tour will begin at the Pecan Store where you will receive a bottle of water and a snack to start the ride. A school bus will take us to the orchard where a farm tractor and wagon will take us on a 1 hour ride through the orchard where we will see the stages of the pecans' growing process under the trees. When we return to the Pecan Store we will have a pecan sampling experience.
Since spaces are limited, Linda suggests each person go online at PecanStore.com to register for the tour and pay the fee.

Tucson Auto Museum at 990 So. Cherry.
On Jan. 11, 10 members toured the Tucson Car Museum, a personal collection of beautifully restored antique and classic cars, including a 1913 Ford “Tin Lizzie” and a DeLorean as well as a gorgeous Pierce Arrow, Hollywood’s favorite at one time. Then we enjoyed lunch at Cattletown Steakhouse.
