Event description

Description

(This is a rescheduled event --it originally planned for August 25, now offered during Hillsborough's Last Friday for September. )

The beloved nursery rhyme, Mary Had a Little Lamb, dates to 1830, just seven years before the Burwells started their school for girls. Perhaps a devoted lamb followed a Burwell student to school just like Mary's lamb?

Teacher and Burwell School tour guide Carrie Currie will tell all about the real story of Mary and her devoted lamb, and will invite her listeners to enjoy a crafts table -- and to take home a bit of real fleece, too. And Sun Mountain Weavers will be here to demonstrate weaving on a real loom, just like the weavers did long ago with lambs wool. Advance reservations are suggested. Walkups will be admitted as space allows. Admission is free.

Join us at the Burwell School for Hillsborough's Last Friday event, September 29!
