Sugaring Off - Sweet for Volunteers!

In this post, guest blogger and volunteer docent, Nancy Pfau, provides a volunteer perspective on Sugaring Off.  Without Nancy and the army of volunteers like her, we would not have been able to serve a record number of guests last weekend - over 900!  With only one Sunday left in March, will you help us make it 1000 served?  

We keep looking for signs of Spring here -- one of the first is the removal of the ice fishing huts along Otsego Lake!  

When I drove past on my way for Docent training on March 15th, I noticed several of the huts being dismantled, then  when I returned to volunteer at Sugaring Off  at the Farmer's Museum, the fishing huts had disappeared!!

As always, the Pancake Eating Affair was very well attended!  Everyone seemed to be having a great time from the youngest to the Seniors!  

The crowds enjoying their pancakes, etc.

In fact, Harvey (an octogenarian, retired surgeon) grabbed volunteer Nick Lomingino's name tag and apron to make the rounds of the tables picking up trays and generally having a great time!
