Pie and ice cream at Rokeby August 12
FERRISBURGH — Having a great day is as easy as pie at Rokeby Museum’s annual Pie & Ice Cream Social — coming up this Sunday, Aug. 12, from 1 to 4 p.m.
Rokeby 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 — and in nearly every combination possible — await visitors who love the taste of summer. And you can justify topping your slice with ice cream from Vermont’s own Wilcox Dairy, or helping yourself to a second serving. All proceeds support the museum’s mission — preserving and explaining a home and property owned by four generations of the Robinson family, and recognized as a stop on the Underground Railroad.
Abby’s Agenda, an electric bass, drums and vocal trio devoted to a lively range of jazz standards will provide music, and lawn games including croquet, badminton and horseshoes will be set up for all to enjoy. A scavenger hunt designed for young children takes them on a lively investigation of the museum’s farm buildings.
“All this and plenty of towering shade trees makes for a relaxing summer afternoon,” says board member and Ferrisburgh resident Marty Dewees. “It’s one of our favorite Rokeby events.”
Rokeby Museum is at 4334 Route 7 in Ferrisburgh.
Admission to Pie Day music and games is free; pie and ice cream is $6 per serving. Admission to museum exhibits and tours of the historic Robinson family home is $10/adult and $8/child.
