Everyone had a great time at Heritage Day yesterday! Despite the toasty temperatures, visitors came to the ranch to "meet" Grandma Rodgers, enacted by Pleasant Hill Historical Society President Dana Matthews, who talked about the Rodgers' family's experience as immigrants from Ireland and what they would have brought over on steamships; play old fashioned games (oak gall relay races, hoops, horseshoes, ball 'n cups); make pioneer crafts (whirligigs, flags. tic-tac-toe sets with bean game pieces, and lavender sachets); pump water from our "well"; do laundry the old-fashioned way, with washboards and tubs; churn and sample their own homemade butter; relax on the porch and drink homemade lemonade; admire Evie Michon's table of beautiful objects made from wheat weavings as they learned that the ranch used to be a wheat farm in the 1800s, and tour the urban farm with Farmer John and Marian. Board Member Christian even kicked off our brick pathway fundraiser (more details to come)! Mayor Michael Harris, Park and Rec's Zac Shess, and City Councilmember Tim Flaherty stopped by, along with all our other important guests, friends, and neighbors. A huge thank you to the many fabulous volunteers who made this Heritage Day possible: Dana, Evie, Kathleen, Eileen, Brenda, Josh, Jocelyn, Victoria, Habiba, Lynn, Shayla, Maria, Adares, Abhinav, Tommy, Sue, Aloma, and Christian! This event would not have been possible without you!
