Day 1

Allied Tour & Travel presents: Puppies and Pie

Join your Allied travel friends and enjoy a day of out-of-the-ordinary sightseeing. A local guide will meet our group and be with us all day.

Your first stop is at Marcon Pies. See how they manufacture everyone's favorite dessert with over 90 flavors: Fruit, nut, cream, specialty and sugar-free. Marcan Pies was established more than 25 years ago as a cottage industry by Marilyn Hanshow and Connie Allen. Intially they baked delicious homemade pies in their own kitchens for their catering business and for auction lunch stands. The name they chose for their fledging business was "MarCon", a combination of part of their first names. The pies soon filled their homes from wall to wall. They then purchased a separate building that become the start and the site of the present factory. Today they sell their pies to supermarkets adn restaurants. More than 100,000 pies are baked annually. And yes, they will have pies for sale the day of our tour!

Next, we visit the Kansas Specialty Dog Service (KSDS) and see where they train service dogs for the physically handicapped, and guide dogs for the visually impaired. It's fascinating how they train and raise these special animals - from breeding through maturity. KSDS began as Kansas Speciality Dog Service and was incorporated as a non-profit with assistance from the State of Kansas Department of Rehabilitation Services and additional support from individual donors. KSDS has celebrated over 25 years of service and has placed over 500 assistance teams.

A delicious noon lunch will be at KSDS. You will enjoy a three meat buffet including vegetables, salads, rolls, and drinks, plus a slice of Marcon pie.

This afternoon we visit Herr's Machine Memory Lane in northwest Washington where there are over 100 vintage vehicles and items on display. A guided tour will show you the 50 year plus collection of completely restored cars, tractors, and engines. You will see the progression of transportation, from a buggy, a 1918 Buick race car, early wreckers, and fire and gas trucks. Another building houses many old tractors, oil field engines and farm implements. See the 1930 Garage complete with tools. Compare the 1920's working wind charger to the latest wind turbine.

We will conclude our day with a Mystery Tour Stop!



This tour is includes average physical activity.  You should be in good health, able to climb stairs and walk and reasonable distances.
