Earth Day 2011

Firehawk Abbott at Earth Day

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 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

6)      Music

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.

The Sixth Annual Spocott Challenge Horseshoe Tournament will be a lot of fun for those who participate and those watching. There are teams of two people in a double elimination tournament.  There are non-profits, church groups, fire companies, businesses and families who join in the competition.  The Neck District Fire Company’s Team won the event last year.
The first place prize was a beautiful trophy that the winning team holds for one year and a check for $100.
Get your name or your organizations name on the team list for this Spocott Earth Day April 22nd. Email Beth Ann Lynch Or call Fred Pomeroy at 410-228-8643.
The cost per team is $50.
Start practicing and come join us!
