Experience Maple Syrup Season March 30

Bloomington Restorations, Inc. invites you to the monthly Museum Open Day at the Hinkle-Garton Farmstead 1-4 p.m. Saturday, March 30, 2019.  This Month’s Open Day will feature “Experience Maple Syrup Season” and the sugaring operations at the Farmstead. Visit the sugaring operations, learn the maple syrup production process, and explore its history. Available for purchase will be freshly bottled maple syrup, maple cream, maple candy, do-it-yourself maple tree tapping kits, and books pertaining to maple syrup production and use. Also available for purchase will be jams and jellies prepared by Farmstead Volunteers.

Friday Musicale and The Bloomington Old-Time Music and Dance Group with Mark Wiedenmayer will be hosting music in the parlor. Volunteers will give indoor tours of the Farmhouse.

The Hinkle-Garton Farmstead is sending a call out for Volunteers who might be interested in assisting with Farmstead tours one Saturday per month (usually the last Saturday each month) from 1-4 PM. Volunteer duties include introducing visitors to the Farmstead history and act as docents/hosts for the afternoon. Our Open Days are conducted in a very easy-going atmosphere, minimal training and commitment required and always under supervision and guidance. All that would be required is an ability to pleasantly engage the public and a 1-1/2 hour training. If interested please contact LeAnn Luce, Hinkle-Garton Farmstead Open Days and Events Coordinator at: lucebella50@gmail.com for more information.

The Farmstead, located at 2920 E. 10th Street in Bloomington, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is owned and maintained by Bloomington Restorations, Inc., an organization committed to the preservation of historic properties in Monroe County.  It is free and open to the public on the last Saturday of most months.  For more information, call BRI at 812-336-0909 or visit the site on Facebook at www.facebook.com/
