Lots of food and fun
huge white tent, set up on the grounds, will house several food vendors selling such delectables as carrot and herb potage, mini quiches, pork ribs and corn on the cob and award-winning cheeses. The Museum itself will be selling hot dogs and home-baked goods, between 10:30 am and 3 pm only, to raise money for the upkeep of the Carrollcroft gardens. “ Caravane Jeunes Pousses will also be there offering paninis, gelatos, smoothies and salads. They’ll give free workshops for kids like the one with a bicycle where the child makes his own smoothie by peddling the bike,” explained the museum’s Jeanne d’Arc Clowery.
For a small fee people will be able to go on a guided Heritage tour of Stanstead the old-fashioned way: on a horse wagon. The horse wagon tours will be departing from the Colby-Curtis Museum between 1 and 3 pm. An exhibition and sale by artist John Houle will take place outdoors along with caricature painting with Trevor McKinven and a tintype photography demonstration by René Bolduc. “People will be able to have their photograph taken using the tintype method,” said Jeanne d’Arc.
Visitors to the Museum can also buy, with a $2 donation, the chance to have their name put into a drawing for a lifetime membership to the Stanstead Historical Society, valued at $500. “We’ll draw the name of the winner of the lifetime membership at 3 pm.,” she concluded.
