Some of our residents got a chance to visit the Franklin Cider Mill just down the road from The Fountains. It first opened in 1918 and has been going strong ever since. For the past two years we always make sure we have time during the fall season to enjoy a trip to this one-of-a-kind cider mill. They make fresh donuts around the clock from an age old German recipe that never fails to disappoint and mouth-watering cider, pressed and bottled right there at the facility. We treated ourselves to this delicious afternoon snack shortly after we arrived, and even helped ourselves to seconds. Our residents loved being able to enjoy the beautiful weather as they sat outside and enjoyed their tasty treat. Some residents even shopped inside the cider mill and brought home fresh fruit and cider to enjoy in the days to come. A fine fall day, indeed!
