Yates Mill Event this Sunday

How How,

A reminder that our Yates Mill event is this Sunday. I was checking the Yates Mill Calender and they have a Mill tour at 2PM. There is a cost though.

When: Sun, October 25, 2pm – 3pm

Description: Explore Yates Mill’s business and social history. View a presentation on the mill’s owners and operations in the Finley Center auditorium, then head to the mill for a guided tour. Explore the first floor of the fully restored mill and see how power is transferred from the mill’s waterwheel to its grist-milling machinery. Pre-registration is encouraged but not required. Fee: $5 for adults, $3 for children age 16 & under, $3 for seniors age 60 & over, babes age 6 & under are FREE.* Max limit: 15 participants per tour.

After the tour, we can walk the .44 mile tree trail. Here is the brochure. This will enhance the tree recognition tour we did at our recent overnight (thanks to Thunder Eagle and Daring Eagle). One idea is to have your little brave bring a bag to collect the different leaves and paste them in a book with his notes.

Probably would need to leave around 1:30 to get there with a bit of time to spare.

Please respond to all so I can get a headcount and reserve space for the 2PM tour. We can carpool from the swimming pool parking lot. Plan to leave at 1:30. See you Sunday.
