Again Ross Nelson and his wife Karen have graciously offered to host us at Nelson's Apple Farm in Webster, MN on Saturday, September 12, 2015. Those of us who attended the 50th reunion picnic at Nelson's Apple Farm recall what an enjoyable time we had. There are plenty of activities that will keep you entertained at Nelson's Apple Farm, or you can just sit back, enjoy the day, and have lunch with classmates and families.You can buy apples and pies in the store, or make it a pick-your-own party in the orchard.
