TO ALL MEMBERS
Cuthbert Grant Day at Grant’s Old Mill was much the same as last year – lots going on – a fine day (after a humid, misty start in the morning). Set up on the hill as we were, the afternoon breezes were most welcome.
Turnout was good – 21. Bill’s carpentry displays – Mike & Dorothy McInnes with agricultural tools – Debbie and Enno figuring out whether the quern ground best clockwise or counter-clockwise – my spinning wheel – Barry’s musket – Erle with his fur and musket, assisted by Tiffany – Emily with her farm animals – the ladies with their embroidery (Zaley, Kaley, Debbie, Vanessa (our newbie), – Louis as Sgt. John Pugh – Genevieve being the mother – and the children – Christopher McInnes, Darion, Xavier and Oceane Woods and Emily Young. Joe T came out in civvies with his camera and as always we will look forward to some of his talented photography on the website soon. Without Joe, there would be no official record of MLHS at many events!!
We have been “told” by our good hosts at Grant’s Old Mill to mark the date for next year.
Ever in the Past….
