Our word for today is again from the medical dictionary: Nephritis. Nephritis is any of various acute or chronic inflammations of the kidneys.
Looking ahead to the weekend, there are many activities going on.
First is a new theatrical production taking place in Hosmer's Inn called "The Grand Tour: A woman's travels in 1830." The performance is 20 minutes long. During the performance, visitors get to meet Mrs. Julia Winner, a traveler in 1830. She tells stories of her adventures and also shows visitors what she is traveling with and why. There are three performances on Saturday: 11:30am, 1pm, and 2:30pm. It is a free show.
On Saturday, we will be having a special demonstration of the American Heritage Chocolates. American Heritage Chocolate is a special blend of chocolate put out by the Mars company for historic use. It is an accurate representation of the chocolate available in America in the late 18th century and 19th century. In the Town Hall, visitors can see how chocolate goes from growing on the tree as a cocoa nut to becoming a rich hot chocolate drink in the 19th century! Special herbs and spices where added to flavor the drink, even some unusual ones like cayenne. Visitors can even try a taste of the hot chocolate. It's very different than our modern hot chocolates, but if you love chocolate, you won't want to miss it! And if you want to take home a piece of your very own American Heritage Chocolate, the Flint Hill Store would be happy to accommodate you.
There will be a baseball game each day at 1:30 to lead up to play offs. The action should be great!
