CASPIAN—The autumn color season is fast approaching--time to celebrate the annual harvest--and the 38th pie social on Sunday, Sept. 25, at the Iron County Museum is a place to go for some good, old-fashioned fun.
In addition to pie with ice cream and dance music, the Classic Farm Machinery Group of Iron County will be using the museum’s antique threshing machine with oats from Dave Hill’s farm to demonstrate the process.
Other classic farm machines will be on display as well.
Demonstrations will start at 10 a.m. and continue throughout the day.
The pie social will start at 1 p.m. when the entire museum opens.
Chet and Ginny, and possibly some friends and relatives, will provide music for visitors dancing and listening enjoyment.
Admission of $6 will include a piece of the perfect pies donated by some of the best bakers in the area, note organizers.
Carrying out the theme of a fall harvest festival, the large photographic display of Iron County’s barns will be on exhibit in the museum Cultural Center.
Both the museum gift shop and the LeBlanc Wildlife Art Gallery are offering many items for sale with 30 percent off.
“It’s not too early to start Christmas shopping. The gift shop offers many unique and outstanding holiday items. Also, LeBlanc prints or stationery and books published by the Museum are always great presents.”
The day’s activities end at 4 p.m.
Funds raised from the $6 admission donation will help to pay for the museum’s winter utility costs or some remodeling in the Michigan Corridor of the main building.
“Plan now to join in this last Sunday event of the summer season.”
