Participants are invited to meet at the orchard, located at 19475 225th Street,
north of Council Bluffs between 5:30 and 6:00 to sign in and enjoy social time.  The bar and gift shop will be open for optional purchases.  The program will begin at 6 p.m. with a guided tour led by Lyle Ditmar.  Lyle will share his experiences with developing a successful agri-tourism business.
 
Following the tour, around 6:45, dinner, including soups, sandwiches, apple pie and cider, will be served.   
 
Immediately after dinner, Corrine Jenkins, a Conservation Assistant at Montgomery County Soil & Water Conservation District, will share her family’s experience with using farmland to fund an altruistic project to honor her mother and other cancer warriors.
