On April 18, 2020 the Parma Radio Club (PRC)will conduct its 8th annual Earth Day Celebration at Stearns Homestead. The special event, from 10 am -4 pm, is open to the public and will feature a variety of interactive educational displays including, of course, amateur radio stations (“ham” stations), a set of morse code keys, and electronic circuit building sets especially geared to youth. Brief explained programs will show how solar systems create electrical power and help save the earth and how world wide radio communication is only possible thanks to our friend the sun. This year will be Earth Day’s 50th anniversary. The event, celebrated around the world in hundreds of countries by millions of people, seeks to remind us all the importance of being good stewards of our precious planet.

Stearns Homestead is located at 6975 Ridge Road in Parma. Parking area is located just south of the homestead.
The Parma Area Historical Society (PAHS) depends on the generosity of our farm friends for support and ask you to consider joining as a member of PAHS. Your membership helps us to offer a place to visit with the farm animals that reside at the homestead. In addition to the farm animals, we maintain periodic displays in the Gibbs House (circa 1940) and offer handmade items, ‘penny’ candy, and other sundries in the Country Store.
We are an all-volunteer organization. All membership funds and donations are used to feed and care for the farm animals and maintain the homestead, the barn, the fences and so much more. On any farm, there is always something that needs repair or work that need to be done.
Individual membership is only $10.00 annually. A family membership or sustaining membership is $25.00. Join today and help us keep the Homestead a viable place for all the enjoy!
All PAHS members will be invited and encouraged to attend our annual meeting to be held on April 19, 2020 in the Stearns cabin.
And of course, we want you to stop by and visit. Opening day is May 17, 2020.
