Come join the GSA for the Mt. Vernon Ghostwalk! We will see if we can catch any ghosts still lingering in the world of the living after Halloween. We will meet on Friday November 3rd in front of the Belvedere at 1 Chase St in Mt. Vernon at 7:15pm. For now, only SOM grad students can purchase tickets, but we can open it up on Thursday evening.
Online ticket sales for this event are closed.
We are planning an apple picking trip to Rock Hill Orchard & Woodbourne Creamery (http://www.rockhillorchard.com), which has pick your own apples, fresh from the farm ice cream, and corn mazes! This will be on Saturday September 30th, and we will be carpooling there. The plan is for carpools to leave Baltimore around noon in order to arrive at the orchard by 1pm. Then we will stay for about 3 hours until 4pm and arrive back in Baltimore around 5pm.
Once you have RSVP’d via one of the options below, follow the URL in the confirmation email if you would like to signup for the carpool. It is important to RSVP regardless of whether you are carpooling or not in order to receive day of weather postponing information or possible but unlikely orchard changes due to apple availability.
As for pricing, Rock Hill Orchard charges by bag not by weight as well as an entry fee to the orchard (multiple entry fees are included depending on the size of the bag purchased as seen below). We should have enough people that nobody will pay an entry fee even if they aren’t picking apples:
- Small Bag – $12 , includes up to 2 guests. This bag holds 5 to 6 pounds of apples
- Medium Bag – $21 , includes up to 4 guests. This bag holds 11 to 12 pounds of apples
- Large Bag -$34 , includes up to 6 guests. This bag holds 22 to 24 pounds of apples
- Additional guests – $3 each
Their Fall Combo is $11/person for a small bag and entry to both cornmazes. For groups 10 people or larger, the Fall Combo price is reduced to $10/person if everything is purchased in one transaction (another important reason to RSVP so we know who is coming)!
Hope to see you there!
