We’re going for the birds again: Cornell Raptor program will be on site. Student volunteers will introduce you to some glorious birds of prey: falcons, owls, and maybe a kestrel or an eagle. Sometimes we see these rulers of the sky aloft, but seeing them up close and personal is special.

There’ll be games and activities led by our Danby Youth Programs. We’ll have a bonfire for ambiance. And for warmth, if temperatures take a dive! Roast some vittles on the flames while enjoying the company of friends and neighbors. Enjoy a bit of cider, cold, hot, spiced, or however you like it. We’re always tickled when someone brings some goodies to share!

We’re cutting the grass from around our trusty community trebuchet, and the potato launcher is coming out of storage. Both will be on hand to fling pumpkins, squashes, potatoes, lemons, and other bio-degradable projectiles. It’s not every day you get to holler, “Fire in the hole!” and lob moldering produce in the general direction of the Town of Caroline. Shhh, don’t tell Caroline!

Music by Lloyd’s Boys and the Jazz Sharks. And more! October 13. Sun- day. Be there!
