Judy's Day at Cornell Plantations

The sun was warm and children of all ages took part in the Judy's Day celebration at the Cornell Plantations.  Judy was a mentor, teacher, and friend of the Plantations and this event honors her many contributions.

Children were taken back in time to experience life as it was without ipods and pads, where life seemed simpler.  They learned how to knit, tat, peel applies with a metal peeler, make baskets, move stones with a horse drawn sled, quilt, stuff mattresses, roll candles, and so many other skills. Everyone seemed quietly festive while they lived life for a few hours as our ancestors had done.

Here are some photos taken today.
