Notes from the Heart...

School starts this week -- but that doesn't mean summer
is over!  Squeeze in some extra summer fun at Billings
Farm & Museum's (in Woodstock, Vermont) Ice Cream
Sundays -- which happens every Sunday  until
September 20 (at noon and 3:00 p.m.).  Visitors  
can participate in making the homemade ice cream
and tasting!  A different flavor will be made each time
and a narrated explanation will be given from scientific
and historical perspectives. Admission to Ice Cream
Sundays includes all programs and activities plus an
added bonus, the 23rd Annual Quilt Exhibition.  
Billings Farm & Museum is open daily from 10:00 a.m.
– 5:00 p.m. For information about programs and activities contact 802/457-2355 or
visit
Billings Farm.
