For 23 years, garden club members and honor society students from the area have gathered at Shawnee Lodge and Conference Center to decorate for Christmas. Each year the responsibility of coordinating the event is rotated from one garden club to another, and this year went to the Rock Hill Garden Club.
5) Shawnee State Park (South): Remember, the leaves do not change in the southern portion of the state until late October, so plan accordingly. Shawnee State Park is the place to absorb the wonder of whirling leaves as it lies tucked away in the foothills on the banks of the Ohio River. There are six hiking trails, ranging in length from half a mile to sixty miles. Mark your calendars for the Fall Hike on October 19th, a relaxing ramble through the trees and trails of Shawnee.
