Did you know?

Did you know that in the early days there were a great variety of activities people enjoyed? (Some are still going on today.) Friends got together for apple butter boilings, butcherings and taffy pulls. Some winter evenings families popped corn, made candy and played checkers. Also, men would mend their fishing nets, make hunting plans and make their own turkey callers.
