Diller Merry Moderns June Tour

Eight members of the Diller Merry Moderns traveled to Pawnee City on Wednesday, June 11, 2014. We began our day with a tour of the Pawnee City Historical Society and Museum. Organized in 1964, it offers a wonderful look back into the past. After lunch break, the group enjoyed browsing the Heavenly Treasures quilt shop in the former Baptist Church building. Another former church building houses the pedal museum. We enjoyed seeing cars, tractors, and metal horses, all powered by the act of pedaling.

Schillingbridge Winery was a good place to relax for a taste of wine and Hors d'oeuvres. Troyer's greenhouse was our final stop before traveling home.
