Our Coordinators for this event have a full day in store for you.

At 11:45 AM, we’ll gather at Burger King.
It’s located at: 7320 Highland Rd, Waterford Twp.
You may click here for directions.
(Bathrooms are available in Burger King).

At 12:00PM SHARP, we’ll depart.  Bob Swartz will lead us on a fun, scenic, country setting, with lots of trees.  It’s just over 40 miles and just under an hour of pure driving enjoyment.
We’ll take a fun 1-hour break at Spicer’s Orchard and Winery.

We’ll each be on our own to enjoy their Fresh DONUTS, and lots of tasty goodies.  There is also knickknack’s to shop for, ice cream, an orchard, and a farm setting to stroll and view.  They also have a wine tasting.  You may click here for their web site, and under the winery tab, you’ll find a downloadable wine menu.

Don’t eat or drink too much, because at 2:00pm, it’s on to the McClorey’s and a fantastic BBQ.

Our hosts, Paul & Alison McClorey have invited us to spend the day, at their home and breathtaking grounds.  The home was built in 1865, and they reside on 6.5 acres, with a pond, barns, horseshoe pits and a working smokehouse.

We plan to arrive at the McClorey’s home by 2:30 pm, with dinner being served by 4:00 pm.

Paul and Alison are already making plans for a fantastic variety of meats, which are cooked in their personal smokehouse, including: salmon, chicken, ribs and brisket.

For everyone’s safety, we ask that you bring: Side dishes for your own consumption, your beverage of choice, and a chair.  Utensils & plates will be provided.

We encourage that you not only maintain ’social distancing’ but also wear a face mask when not eating or drinking.

There will be a bathroom available.
