Sugaring Off Sundays Here? Spring Can’t Be Far Behind

PANCAKES, MORE EACH SUNDAY IN MARCH

Sugaring Off Sundays Here?

Spring Can’t Be Far Behind

Temperatures in the teens made it look like The Farmers’ Museum volunteer Steve Davis (top photo) was walking on a cloud, as he manned the syrup-making evaporator on the museum’s grounds on the shores of Otsego Lake, Cooperstown, part of the demonstrations that accompanied the pancake, eggs and sausages that are all part of Sugaring Off Sundays, which are planned (this year, and traditionally) each Sunday in March.  How was the food?  Jase Moore’s face says all you need to know.  The 6-year-old (inset, right)  was attending from Hartwick.  (Jim Kevlin/AllOTSEGO.com)

Dean Johnson, 5, Milford, and mom Emily smother a pine cone with peanut butter and seeds as a homemade bird feeder at the weekly arts and crafts workshop at The Farmer’s Museum this morning. “We came with some friends last year and he really enjoyed it.

Scrooge, Marley Bring Thrills To Packed House

‘CHRISTMAS CAROL’ ENDS RUN

Scrooge, Marley Bring

Thrills To Packed House

Before a packed hour at this hour at Cooperstown’s Farmer’s Museum, The Ghost of Christmas Past (Peter Exton of Oneonta) confronts Scrooge (Mike Henrici of Cooperstown) with the error of his ways during The Glimmer Globe Theatre’s final 2019 presentation of Charles Dickens’ “Christmas Carol.” This is the last of four performances over the weekend; today, the Louis Jones Center was so full some would-be theatergoers had to be turned away.  In what’s become a local Christmas tradition, the play was directed by Henrici and adapted from the original Dickens by him and his wife Danielle.
