Remembrance of 9:11

Our last day of the 19th Century Salute to Seniors remembers the 10th anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Centers, the Pentagon, and the attempt that failed in PA. There will be a church service at 10 am in the Brooks Grove Church.
At 1pm, the bells in Brooks Grove will be rung for one minute as part of the commemoration of the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the United States. As a tribute to those we lost, we ask that everyone cease all activity and conversation for one minute.
At 2pm, there will be a Harmonics Concert in Brooks Grove that will have a patriotic program.

Demonstrations you can see today are dyeing yarn, black powder shooting, fly tying, fly casting, butter churning, tinsmithing, and blacksmithing.
Tastings for today are Shrub, herbed butter, and jam.
You can try your hand at making sweet bags, teacup quilts, fly tying, bread kneading, 19th century games, tin ornaments, and churning butter.
There are two ladies baseball games today as well as the Victorian Tea in the Garden Pavilion.

Meet our Pioneer Family for the weekend, the Burns family. They are the descendants of the family that donated the Pioneer Farm to the museum. See how they are enjoying the weekend living in the Pioneer Cabin.
Our Trolley will be running.
The word of the Day today is knee high to a...which many of our visitors may have heard before. It is a humorous description of short stature or youth. "I remember when the trees in the Village Square were knee high to a mosquito."
