Join the group for a pleasant mid-September day-trip to Davenport. The day will include a tour of the Isabel Bloom factory to watch the process of molding and finishing her popular, whimsical statues of animals, children, and angels with time to browse in the showroom. Lunch will be next at Lagomarcino’s, a fourth-generation Italian home-made ice cream and chocolate business with an old-fashioned soda fountain and mahogany booths. While you enjoy your choice of Lagomarcino’s famous ice cream dishes, soups, salads, and sandwiches, they will show us how their famous chocolates are made. (You will probably purchase some to take home.) To walk off lunch, we will tour the Figge Art Museum in the afternoon. You can tour the building entirely on your own or join our one-hour guided tour before you explore. The museum includes an outstanding Grant Wood collection as well as other portraits, landscapes, and some Frank Lloyd Wright sculpture. We should be ready to head homeward around 4:30 PM.
