PRATTSVILLE — Winter is still here, as we all know. Seems like spring arrives later and later and the fall frost makes a delayed appearance each year. Mother Nature at work or just playing games?
Update on onetime residents — Artie and Irene Hill Sherman — who are now living in Tennessee. Artie has his health issues under control and the added benefit to that is he says he feels much better. Irene continues to keep busy around the family home with other members of their family being close by to keep them occupied. If you know Irene, you know she will not be sitting idle. A shout out “greetings” to all the Sherman family.
Conesville Fire Department will host a Pancake Breakfast 8-11 a.m. April 2, inclusive of pancakes, bacon, sausage, eggs, coffee and orange juice. It will be buffet style and by donation. And to make it family friendly, there will be an Easter Egg Hunt beginning at 9 a.m. Please bring your own basket to find more than 250 eggs. Easter Bunny will be in attendance.
You are in our thoughts, greetings go to Frankie Hermance of Lexington and Brenda Rappleyea of Windham.
Want something to do later on in the Spring? Mark your calendar with the following: New Netherland Marketplace, 1645: Living History Event 10 a.m.-5 p.m. June 10 and June 11.
Historic Huguenot Street invites you to a mid-17th century marketplace, where you’ll discover Indigenous, Black, and European representation sharing their craftsmanship and culture, and portraying life in 1645 New Netherland. Living historians portraying Dutch merchants, traders, and craftspeople will be offering demonstrations on leather and wood working, hearth cooking, tailoring, wampum making, blacksmithing, and more. The marketplace will also include displays of camp gear and furs, clothing, wooden bowls, and other items for sale.
Lenape and Delaware representatives will be returning to their ancestral homelands to portray the life of their ancestors and their economic relationship with the Europeans. Their camp will have ongoing open fire cooking, cordage making, bow shooting, flintknapping, arrow making, and hide tanning demonstrations throughout the weekend. Enrolled members of the five federally recognized communities will be present, representing their people and culture, and speaking about their communities today. Sponsorship opportunities are available! For more information, contact the Development Department at email@example.com or 845-867-0218.
