Steve Anderson from Anderson Maple of Cumberland will tell us what is new. Russ Hanson, the River Road Rambler himself, will tell us what is old. Beginning syruping taught. FREE, door prizes and refreshments. Guaranteed to put you in a spring mood!
My family claims an broken line of syrupers in North America starting when GGGGGGG grandpa John Beebe's family came to New London Connecticut, and learned how to do it from the Native Americans in 1650!
