I was extremely saddened when my son called me from Machesney Park to tell me about the orchard. I was in town in September for one my daughters' wedding and we took all the grandkids out to the orchard between the wedding and the reception. Fancy clothes and all! Had a great time as always. I live in Irving Texas now and don't always get to come up when they are open but my kids always freeze some cider and some doughnuts for me to have at Christmas. I love it. I have always had a special connection to the orchard because when I was in school at North Boone I helped plant the trees when they first decided to become an orchard. This has always been something I have been proud of. I know you will rebuild and make it as nice as it was. I don't think you could make it any better than it was. I'm glad no one was hurt. Good luck and I'll be looking forward to my next visit. Don Griffis D.C.
