Howie has been on the move this October! During the last few weeks our group has been to see some of our favorite fall attractions. One group of BFF's enjoyed a beautiful afternoon at Gull Meadow Farms. They were treated to fresh apple cider, donuts and a wild wagon ride through the Farm's orchard. Next our Bickford Men's Club took the Air Zoo by storm. More than a dozen of our gentlemen spent the afternoon taking in more than 50 diverse aircraft that are on display. They took a walk through history seeing a replica of the first Wright Flyer, World War II era fighters and bombers, all the way up to the modern and one-of-a-kind SR-71B Blackbird - the fastest plane ever built. It sure has been a busy fall and we can't wait to see what adventures are ahead for our group!
