Fun Times!



Thank you to our ’49er volunteers that set up all our extra activities!

Thank you Nancy for providing special Build a Doll or Horse project  at the craft table.  There were a few dolls and horses being held and soon to find a home with younger family members.  They made for a great handmade gift for someone special.

Blacksmith and Dutch Oven Demonstrations

Thank you to Floyd Blackmon for showing off his blacksmithing skills and art pieces.  It is amazing to watch a straight piece of steel be heated over an open fire and turned into tools and artwork.

The Dutch Oven receipes and tasting are always a great treat
