_Tour of Quincy Veteran's Home 2009
_On June 3, 2009, ten members made a trip to Quincy for shopping, lunch overlooking the Mississippi River, and a visit to the Illinois Veteran's home. The grounds are large and we toured in a "chariot" pulled by a patriotic tractor with a guide to tell us about the facility. Unfortunately budget constraints have caused the cancellation of tours. You can drive through or park and walk on your own. The grounds are open to the public (not the buildings). As of 2010, tours are not being given due to budgetary constraints.
