In September, the clients went to the Fort Lee Historical Park. The museum at the park follows the early colonists from protest to the Revolution. There are replicas of the original Fort Lee. Interactive exhibits show how the soldiers of the Revolutionary War survived. There are live demonstrations of colonists preparing food and chopping wood to keep warm and cook. We also saw how ammunition was made and used.
Adults participated in the Fall Harvest apple picking at Och’s Orchard. Following a map of the different types of apples, adults and staff hiked through the orchards. While in the orchards we tasted the different types apples, and picked the ones we enjoyed the most. We discussed the various tastes and the many recipes for apples.
