Rokeby Museum to host annual pie social in Ferrisburgh this Sunday

FERRISBURGH — Having a great day is as easy as pie at Rokeby Museum’s annual Pie & Ice Cream Social, which is slated for Sunday, Aug. 13. from 1 to 4 p.m.
The museum’s corps of pie-baking volunteers has been perfecting the art of pie making for more than 30 years. Peach, apple, berry pies of every kind — it’s 12 feet of pie like you’ve never seen before. Why not make it “a la mode,” with ice cream from Vermont’s own Wilcox Dairy? And you can justify helping yourself to a second slice because all proceeds support the museum’s mission — to educate people about the history of the Underground Railroad in pre-Civil War Vermont.
The day will include music courtesy of Abby’s Agenda; it’s an electric bass, drums and vocal trio devoted to familiar — and not so familiar — jazz standards. It promises to be a great place to relax in the shade with summer’s sweetest treat.
Rokeby Museum is a 90-acre historic site and National Historic Landmark designated for its exceptional Underground Railroad history. The “railroad” was a means by which abolitionists helped move escaped slaves into freedom. Rokeby was home to four generations of the Robinson family, from 1793 to 1961. The museum is located on Route 7 in Ferrisburgh.
