Ferrisburgh Day returns with something for everyone

Ferrisburgh Day is shaping up to be a wonderful weekend with something for everyone, from a Medivac Helicopter, fire engine, antique cars and tractors at the fire station open house on Sunday, Sept. 26, 10 a.m.-2 p.m.), to an open house at Rokeby Museum, from 10 a.m.-5 p.m., and at the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum, from 10 a.m.-5 p.m., and an open house at the Ferrisburgh Historical Society with apples, donuts and cider,1 p.m.-4 p.m.

Jean Richardson, one of the organizations of the event, noted, “this is a great opportunity to meet your neighbors, celebrate Town History, and see what amazingly talented, generous people live, work and volunteer in Ferrisburgh.”

On Sunday the 26th you can start your day with a guided walk into the town forest, 9 a.m.-noon. This could be followed by a tool demonstration at the Union Meeting Hall at 11 a.m., and Vets for Quilts presentation at 1 p.m., followed by music from 3-6 p.m. And at the train station in Ferrisburgh/Vergennes there will be a special presentation from 1- 3 p.m.

On both Saturday, Sept. 25 and Sunday the 26th, from 11 a.m.-5 p.m., the “Creative Ferrisburgh” exhibition at the Town Hall Community Center, will showcase the work of more than 16 local artists and artisans and the school children from Ferrisburgh Central School.

Featured works include paintings by Sara Katz, Judith Rey, Janet Seaburg, and Deanna Shapiro; fine-art photography by Raissa Venables and Dylan Griffin; portrait photography by Allison Eddy; woodworking by Jeff Parsons; mixed media prints by Richard Morin; batik by Alison Parsons; glass art by Maxine Davis, ceramics by Jen Labie, sculpture by Denis Versweyveld and Keith Wagner; quilts by Andre Emmell; and flags by Holly Moriglioni. The show will also include works by local youth artists from the Ferrisburgh Central School and more!

And for the children there will be a passport, which they can get stamped at several of the event sites and be rewarded by a free ice cream from Cookie Love.
