The Diller Merry Moderns traveled to Washington, KS on Tuesday, Sept. 9, 2014 for a fall tour. Marcon Pies was our first stop. We observed the making of gooseberry pies from forming the crust to a “ready to eat” pie. Each of us received a piece of pie that we enjoyed with a cup of coffee at a nearby quick shop.
We traveled to Barnes, KS for lunch at our Daily Bread followed by visiting several small shops in town. The afternoon was spent back at Washington touring KSDS Inc. Assistance Dogs. We visited the kennel facility and watched three of the service dogs at work. KSDS trains dogs used as guide dogs, service dogs and facility dogs.
