One Of Coldest Weekends Ideal

For Hanford Mills’ Ice Harvest

In it’s 29th year, the annual Hanford Mills Museum’s Ice Harvest Festival attracted hundreds of local families to East Meredith Saturday, eager to participate in the old fashioned ice harvest. Pictured above, Josh Coleman, 8, Windsor, helped cut ice blocks from the pond, pushed the blocks up a ramp on the bank, and pulled them on a sled to the ice house. Helping Josh in the photo is Milford resident Marvin Zachow. Besides the ice harvest, guests could observe ice sculptures, ride on a horse drawn wagon, and watch a live blacksmith demonstration. When guests got cold, Lori Solenstein, Milford, pictured at right, and many other volunteers were ready to serve soup which had been donated by many different local businesses. (Parker Fish/
