I have successfully finished my first week at Conner Prairie and can honestly report that I am humbled and even more excited now than ever before to be part of such a great organization. I cannot wait for the grounds to open next weekend! Not only do I get to play with newborn lambs, I also get to milk a cow and spin on a great wheel. BEST JOB EVER!
If you haven’t been to Conner Prairie in a while, you really should go again. Things have changed. Events in April you may be interested in include the Sheep to Blanket weekend April 13-15 where you might see me shearing a sheep by hand. Or, if you are up for it, the award winning Follow the North Star program will run April 13-14, 20-21 & 27-28.
Civil War days will be May 19-20 and there will be a grand re-opening of Prairietown June 9-10. There is always something to do or experience, so come on out.
