There wasn't ice last year.” Grimes, who is from Frederick, Md., did the plunge with her friend Megan Gutierrez, 14, last year.

Joe Scheerer of Keedysville has a hobby that fits best in another century. A graphic artist by day, Scheerer taught himself blacksmithing as a new interest in 2007. He will be demonstrating at Boonesborough Days Saturday, Sept. 8, and Sunday, Sept. 9. “It's important we not lose our manual skills,” Scheerer said. “I'm not ready to give up my iPod or anything. I'm not anti-technology. I think it's just important to remember how to do things.” The festival is the oldest continuously operating arts and crafts festival in Washington County, according to the Boonsboro Historical Society, which organizes the event.
