Windmill Foundation to Co-Sponsor Earth Day
Saturday, April 23, 2016, 10 AM – 3 PM
The Windmill Foundation is totally revamping our spring open house by combining the windmill operation with a Dorchester County Earth Day Celebration. We’re joining forces with the Dorchester Citizens for Planned Growth (DCPG) to provide a day of environmental and historical celebration with the Spocott Windmill as a focus. The day will be a great day for a family to come out, learn about our rich historical, cultural, and environmental legacy, enjoy some good food, and meet a lot of fascinating people. In addition to the usual running of the mill and tours, the day will include:
1) Ongoing demonstrations by Daniel Firehawk Abbott on Native American history and culture: stone and bone tool manufacture, cordage and textile making, friction fire making
2) Arbor Day tree giveaway
2) Environmental and historical exhibits
3) Activities for children: crafts, games, scavenger hunt
4) Horseshoe tournament
5) Face Painting
8) Tours of all buildings: windmill, Miller’s cottage, Castle Haven Schoolhouse, Country Store and Museum, Blacksmith shop
Food, parking, restrooms, and a good time will be available for all. There is no charge for admission. The day’s events will take place rain or shine.
