ADA — 59 people joined Ada Senior Citizens for their bus trip to Union County. 55 rode the bus chartered from Excursions Trailways in Ottawa. Four people drove in a private car. Aboard the bus were people from Ada, Alger, Dola, Dunkirk, Kenton, Findlay and La Fayette.
The trip was planned by Judy Magee, president of Ada Senior Citizens with much assistance from Tina Knotts of the Union County Convention and Visitors Bureau.
The group’s first stop was at Der Dutchman in Plain City for brunch. Shopping there was facilitated by 20% off coupons that everyone received. The next stop in Plain City was Yutzys Cheese House where ice cream was enjoyed. The bus was boarded by tour guides Sue Irwin and Steve Stolte.
Sue is a volunteer and Steve is currently a Union county commissioner and a retired Union county engineer. They provided much information about the county’s seven covered bridges and the history of the area. The group visited four of the bridges and had a stop at the Pottersburg Bridge.
There was also a tour of downtown Marysville and a chance to see the home of Reuben L. Partridge who designed and built four of the bridges. He also had a patent on his design. The group stopped at Doc Hendersons for dessert and drinks in mid-afternoon.
The final stop on the trip was Bokes Creek Winery which was on the way home on S.R. 31. The Union County Visitors and Convention Bureau provided those on the trip information about the county.
Recently a smaller group of senior citizens drove to Kenton for lunch at Henry’s and toured the Hardin County Museum. Linda Iams, director of the museum gave the group a lively guided tour.
