August Midweek Drive

August 22


The August Midweek drive will start and end at Café 22 in West Salem.   Come early and have one of the best breakfast meals around.  The Aspinwall’s have run a fruit stand for over 50 years.  See this link for a summary article  https://www.polkio.com/archive/cafe-22s-family-recipe/article_2bb19a6c-ef66-5cfe-856d-0158e629dcd8.html

We will leave Café 22 at Lombardi time (9:00 am), so please be here by 8:30 to sign waivers and have a participants meeting at 8:45 am.  We will drive up and over the Eola Hills and travel along some beautiful 2 lane roads eventually turning east passing by Bethel heights, Perrydale and past the Baskett Slough on way to the first rest stop at Dallas City Park where there is ample parking and real bathrooms.  From there we will we will wind our way around Oakdale, to Monmouth Hwy, travelling over the hills, to Hyak County Park. The third leg will take us on the back roads along the River, past Ankeny Wildlife Refuge and cross through Independence on our way back to Café 22.  At Aspinwall’s will have our own outside area to visit and have lunch.  Because of the separate tickets, an automatic 18% will be added.

We will start with 20 cars in 2 groups.  If less sign up then we will adjust. A waitlist will be added if needed to fill in cancelations.  Registration will open on Thursday, July 25 at 7:00 pm. We are in need of 2 sweeps and 1 lead.  Please volunteer for these roles when you register.
