It’s been a busy month at the museum.
There’s been a full schedule of events at the museum. We’ve had our regular 1st and 3rd Sunday’s folk and blue grass free jams. The music is always great –Open and free to all musician’s and listeners. Bring potluck to share. Starts around 3:00. Good food, good times. On the fourth Sunday the Ohio Buckeye Dowsers meet. Again free and open to all. –Another great potluck and lots of learning of a traditional ancient skill. Special events included a weekend long Survival Skills Level 1 class (go to www.survivalschool.com for more info.), and a MG car rally and ice cream social. We’ve also had a full schedule of Heritage Home School classes. We teach many heritage skills to students and adults (see http://www.heritagehomesteadclasses.blogspot.com for a listing of upcoming classes.) We’ve also had lots of volunteers helping out, especially in the many gardens and with paint scraping. And the museum has received many fine donations, including a 1934 fire truck, two wood fired kitchen stoves for the museum bakery, a really great washing machine with a double wringer, and a chicken and two ducks. And, of course, there’s all the daily visitors to tour the museum and farm. All the meanwhile the daily work of museum building display and restorations go on with the addition of “new” hundred year old shelving to the Tin Shop and the continueing work on the Randolph Post Office.
