TUESDAY, AUGUST 5 – "THE OLD AND THE NEW" – Oregon, IL

Lunch and laughter will resound at the OLD -- an afternoon matinee performance of "LOL -- Third Time's a Charm." LOL usually means "laugh out loud" which you will do plenty of, but in this case it also means "Little Old Ladies," -- four feisty females who throw comedy and caution to the wind! A delicious lunch buffet is included before the performance. Then it is time for the NEW -- we will travel a short distance to the "Barnacopia." This is a brand new peg-built designed museum which brings the old and new together. Stroll down memory lane while touring three floors packed with antique cars, tractors, motorcycles, and much more!
