Johnsburg — The itinerary has been announced for a four-day midwinter coach bus trip from northeast Fond du Lac County to Louisville, which begins Valentine's Day (Feb. 14).

The first day of the excursion will include a morning stop at the CNH (Case New Holland) plant in Racine and an afternoon visit to Beck's Seed in Atlanta, Illinois.

On the morning of Feb. 15, following arrival in the Louisville area, the tourists will have a choice of visiting the Louisville Slugger baseball bat factory and museum or starting a full day visit at the major farm machinery show in Louisville. The day's evening choices are attending a Tractor Pull or a comedy show at the Derby Dinner Playhouse.

For Feb. 16, the farm machinery show is the main choice, but there is also an option of a tour of the Corvette plant and museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky, provided at least 20 attendees choose that option.

On the Feb. 17 return date, a morning stop is scheduled to tour the Kokomo Opalescent Glass Factory at Kokomo, Indiana. A return time of 6 p.m. is planned.
