Holiday Farm in Ada was the setting of a fabulous field trip enjoyed by our I.M.POSSIBLE girls group on August 24. Tubie Gilmore welcomed the girls with a delicious lunch of grilled hotdogs and salads. Then they piled into the back of a pickup truck for a tour of Tubie and Gene's beautiful, 330-acre farm along the banks of the Grand River. Tubie sent everyone home with bagfuls of fresh corn, tomatoes, potatoes, and flowers. Thank you, Tubie and Gene, for supporting GAAH in this very special way.
