This year’s celebration will offer a host of exhibits, the craft fair, pony rides, garden and horse barn tours, a nature trail hike, spinning, weaving and felting demonstrations, and much more.
Back this year will be Mark Booth’s Take Flight! Wildlife Education program. Based in Indianapolis, Booth’s program will stress the importance of the natural world while utilizing a handful of birds of prey.
Cooking demonstrations – led by The Maple Center – will also take place, and the Congregation’s Climate Change Task Force will conduct a Bingo game. The Sisters of Providence will also offer a bake sale.
