The April meeting was attended by 9 Members. MAY FESTIVAL is coming right along. The planning is almost complete.
Be sure and mark your calendars. MAY 10, SATURDAY. Come join us as we celebrate the welcoming of Spring. Jo Ann Owens and the Blue Grass Band will pe entertaining the crowd with their lovely music. Bring your instrument and join the festivities.
We hope to have Eron Johnson here for appraisals. As soon as he confirms I will post it on the web.
Chris Ross will be serving lunch off the old wood stove. Claudia will demonstrate spinning and knitting. Charlotte will be chatting with all in the soddy. If you would like to demonstrate a craft or an art you are welome.
Chris Worth and the Boys will give tours of the buildings. Hopefully the ditch will be running, we are out of little boats so have your kiddies bring one to float. Nice weather we will decorate the May Pole. A nice day in the park.
Mother's Day gifts for under $2.00 will be available for the kiddies.
While looking for old recipes we ran across this one: We dare you to try it and bring it to the May Festival.
