The St. George and Thomaston Recreation Departments are offering a senior citizens charter bus trip to Pineland Farms in New Gloucester and to the Museum of Art at Bowdoin College on Thursday, Oct. 13.

The group will travel to Pineland Farms, a 5,000-acre working farm, business campus, educational and recreational venue located in the rolling hills of New Gloucester. Upon arrival the guided tour will include a stop at the Equestrian Center where visitors can see Dutch Warmblood Horses up close and personal. On the way to Valley Farm, visitors will stop at the creamery and watch cheese being made. Once at the farm, guests can explore the family farmyard, working dairy and poultry barns, as well as interact with farming exhibits at the Education Center. At the conclusion of the tour visitors will have an opportunity to enjoy a freshly made lunch on the farm (at one’s own expense). The next stop includes a visit to Brunswick for an hour-long guided tour of the Bowdoin College Museum of Art before proceeding back to the Midcoast.

The trip is expected to return to the Thomaston/St. George area between 5 and 6 p.m.

This trip is free to resident senior citizens of St. George and Thomaston. The non-resident fee is $25 for senior citizens age 65 and above and $35 for ages 50-64.

The bus will load at 7:30 a.m. at the town office in Tenants Harbor and will then proceed to Thomaston and load at 7:45 a.m. at the Knox Hotel on Main Street.

Comfortable footwear and layered clothing is strongly recommended. Some space is available on the bus for wheelchairs, or other forms of walking aids.
