Day two of of the 19th century Salute to Seniors

Today is the second day of our 19th century Salute to Seniors, a week-long event jam-packed with special activities for visitors to the Genesee Country Village and Museum. Our word of the day today is Peart, which means fresh and happy, or sprightly. "Despite the weather, we are all quite peart today."

Visitors can enjoy demonstrations on pottery, blacksmithing, tinsmithing, coopering, basketmaking, fly tying and casting, butter churning, and black powder shooting.
Activities to try yourself include teacup quilts, sweet bags, embroidery, tin ornaments, and log sawing.
Tastings include jam, herbed butter, and shrub.
Two concerts today: 2pm there is a Ragtime Concert in Davis, and at 3pm an Organ Concert in Brooks Grove Church.

As with yesterday, our trolley will be running all day with increased stops to allow greater access to the Village. Hope to see you there!
