The Chunnenuggee Garden Club members enjoy day trips during the three summer months, holding no business meetings until September. The monthly day trip for July was on Thursday, July 18, 2019. Members enjoyed a buffet lunch at Sisters Restaurant in Troy.

They saw several "9" car tags in the big crowded parking lot, indicating some other Bullock County folks were here also. Marie Allen (club president), Sadie Pugh, Faye Gaston, Barbara Cox and her great granddaughter, Camille, had reserved a table and had a leisurely lunch from many choices of traditional southern food.

Driving back to Union Springs, Marie Allen pointed out the many acres of cotton, corn and peanuts in this area of Alabama just outside Bullock County.

Getting closer to home, she also pointed out the country homes of Bullock County folks along the highway. Back in Union Springs, they enjoyed cold ice cream cones at May's Marathon Station on this hot summer day. The next day trip will be in August.
