Crocheting, darning and making kraut are favorites for school children as they tour the display on the second floor of the Hanover Store which features the many chores and duties of a mother from long ago. They notice too, that the store of long ago was just a bit different from the supermarkets of today. And the mill house and machinery intrigues their imagination.
Visitors of all ages are welcome to enjoy a trip back in time as they view the buildings at the Village of Hanover. The collection of butter molds and general store items as well as the other displays will bring back memories. The mill house with the pulleys and shafts and the machine shed with the antique machinery will also take you back in time. The Hanover Historical Society invites everyone to enjoy their displays at the Village of Hanover this summer. The buildings will be open on Sunday afternoons this week through Labor Day from 2 to 5 p.m. Admission is $2 for adults, children 14 and younger are free.
The Two Rivers Timber Ghost Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation will be hosting a Women in the Outdoors event on July 19 and 20, at Twin Lakes Christian Center in Manson.
Through this event, women from all walks of life will be given the chance to experience the thrill of outdoor activities such as camping, recreational shooting and fishing. It will also allow women's to develop a greater understanding of wildlife conservation and meet others who share their enthusiasm.
