Head to the hills for Maple Weekend events
To the Editor:
Come to the Hilltowns to celebrate springtime and the beginning of the maple season.
This year’s events start off this Saturday with a pancake breakfast at the Berne Reformed Church; the Maple Fest Craft Fair at the Berne firehouse; and the Third Annual Sap Run 5K in Knox, where you can get a free T-shirt and run or walk off some calories.
This Sunday, you can enjoy a Pancake breakfast hosted by the Girl Scouts at the Berne Masonic Lodge.
Next weekend, you can find a pancake breakfast at the Lutheran Church in Berne on Saturday morning, while Sunday brings the Kiwanis Maple Fest with — you guessed it — a pancake breakfast, along with crafts, a petting zoo and pony rides. Maple producers will be open for tours and product sales: Mountain Winds Farm in Berne will be open for all four days, Malachi Farms and Lounsbury Farms in Knox on Sunday, March 30, only.
