Goshen Mega Rally Day 4-7 – Part 2   Leave a comment

Day 4

We were off by motorcoach to the RV Motorhome Museum and Hall of Fame.

What memories!

I think we are keeping some of our guests too busy.

Lunch was provided at Linton’s Enchanted Gardens

Afterwards we visited the Bonnyville Mill for a special tour

And Fruit Hills Winery & Orchard for a wine tasting.

Day 5

Another morning of doughnuts and line dancing.

Good thing we are exercising to take away some of the many pounds of food we are eating.

Several seminars and roundtable discussions were on the schedule for the day, as well as arts and crafts.

Since they are all going on at the same time, it’s difficult to decide what to do.

Lunchtime was spent at “Girls Time Out” and “Man Cave”

The girls played bunco and had a hat contest while we woman weren’t privy to what the Man’s Cave did.

Cooking with Cheryl is always a popular seminar. She comes up with the easiest things to do that make amazing meals.

The evening was spent with our Mystery Party. It sure was difficult keeping our secret from all the guests. We provided a carnival night with lots of games and prizes.

We even had a fortune teller, Ms. Juanita

I’m not sure who had more fun, the guests or the staff!

After all the games, there were prizes to be bought with their tickets at our live auction.

Day 6

Sunday is always set aside for the Rivoli Revue Gospel Service, an optional uplifting service featuring music, scripture, and inspirational speaking. And when I say inspirational, I mean inspirational. No matter what your faith is, you won’t go away without being moved and inspired.

We had many arts and crafts entered into the judging contest, with many winners.

We also set up a flea market to give our guests an opportunity to sell their items, followed by an ice cream social, banana split in fact!

The live auction provides our guests to have their items auctioned off for their benefit, or their designated favorite charity. We raised quite a bit for “Care” which is a wonderful charity which is like an assisted living for RVers.

The “item of the day” was the masque that Juanita outbidded everyone on. The reason the bid got so high on this item is that she wanted it to give as a gift to our rallymaster, Kay. Juanita presented it to Kay at our farewell dinner. Boy was Kay surprised!

Our evening ended with a show by “New Odyssey.” Classic rock, country, novelty and specialty arrangements. Three guys and 30 instruments!

Tina Turner was the BEST

All I can say is WOW!

We couldn’t help but to get up and dance.

Day 7

Our bus tour today took us to the Wakarusa Dime Store, home of the World Famous Jumbo Jelly Bean

What a way to start a day. Candy anyone? Some of us got on the bus with a sugar high!

Next, we visited the Rise’ N Roll Bakery.

Followed by a visit to the Dutch Farmer’s/Flea Market for lunch. Now you know why they call this the 10 pound tour.

We spent the afternoon at Amish Acres Historic Farm and Heritage Resort, an 80 acre working Amish Farm, to see a 130 year old Amish Homestead with a farm wagon ride and guided tour.

Completing our stay with a Thresher’s Dinner.
