Stop in on Saturdays from 11 am – 2 pm to pick up some fresh vegetables, a delicious nutroll, some homemade pierogies, dog treats, a gourd birdhouse or a wonderful local craft, painting or sketch… honey and farm fresh eggs… all at our farmers’ market at Stearns Homestead.
Boy Scout Troop 88 will conduct a flag retirement ceremony at Stearns Homestead on Saturday, June 15, 2019 beginning at 2:30 pm. All are welcome to attend. It is suggested that you bring a chair.
Area scouts/ troops are encouraged to attend and participate.
If you have a worn, torn American flag that is beyond repair, bring it with you or drop off in our flag bin located on the Gibbs screened porch by June 15.
The ceremony will be conducted as referenced in the BSA Handbook – “A national flag that is worn beyond repair may be burned in a fire. The ceremony should be conducted with dignity and respect and the flag burned completely to ashes.”
Review, print or save a copy of the schedule of events so you don’t miss out on all the fun at Stearns Homestead this season. Starting in April through December, the Parma Area Historical Society (PAHS) will host several special events for all members of your family to enjoy.
Our feed table will open on weekends beginning with Opening Day on May 19. (However, if the weather cooperates, we may open on Sundays before then.)
Our first event will be an Easter pop-up shop on April 6, 2019 featuring bunny e-photos with our live bunnies in the cabin. E-photo donation is $5. Holiday items will be available for sale in the Gibbs House.
Watch for additional postings of activities and events that may be added throughout the summer.
For those of you who missed it on March 3, 2018 ….
