Civil War Trust Park Day – Stowe House, April 7 @ 9:30 am – 12:00 pm

The Round Table will be working with the Harriet Beecher Stowe House in Walnut Hills to support the Civil War Trust’s Park Day event.  Come out and help a local site for a few hours, then engage in more conversation over a meal and libations at a local restaurant.

The object of Park Day is to give some help to the venues that we all enjoy going too so often, but seldom think how much work is needed to keep these sites viable. To this end, we will do our part to spruce up the grounds around the Home to make it more appealing to visitors. As many residents can attest, this has been a rough winter and it has taken its toll on the grounds around the Stowe House and any help will be appreciated.

What are you getting for your efforts?  The Stowe House staff will give us a tour of the home and the grounds.  The first thirty-five participants will receive a Park Day t-shirt.  And you will have the satisfaction of helping this historic site.

We ask that everyone show up at 9:30 a.m., (comfortable clothes are a must – remember, we are going to work first) we will have gloves, trash bags, brooms, sticks for paper pickup, water (if you work up a thirst), and above all eagerness to help make the Stowe House ready for summer visitors.  

There will be a sign-up sheet at the next two meetings and information in the newsletter, The Canister.
