Spring Bus Tour to Paine Center
This year's Spring bus tour returns to the Paine Center in Oshkosh. Tour participants previously had the opportunity to view the Paine's wonderful Christmas season Nutcracker display. On June 22, 2015 the Spring NHHS bus tour returns to the Paine Center to enjoy a morning guided tour of the Paine Mansion which includes a viewing of "The Gowns of Downton Abby" exhibit. The Paine Center is one of the North American sites to host the exhibit which showcases gowns worn by actresses in the wildly popular PBS television series. The Tour also includes a stroll through the fascinating Paine Gardens.
From the Paine Center the tour head's to Fratellos Waterfront Restaurant and Brewery, in Oshkosh, for lunch. The lunch will feature a choice of the following sandwiches: Turkey Pesto (shaved turkey with spinach, pesto mayonnaise, avacado & Monterery Jack cheese on a ciabatta bun); BBQ Pork (roasted BBQ pork with BBQ sauce and red onions on a ciabatta bun); or Cheesy Burger (ground chuck beef topped with spinach, tomatoe, and onion on a fresh roll). All sandwiches are served with soup (type to be announced), fresh-cut fries and a choice of milk, coffee, or ice tea.
After lunch the tour continues onward to another noted Oshkosh site, the EAA Museum. The after noon tour will include a guided tour of the main museum exhibits and time to explore specialty areas of individual interest.
