600 Visitors at the Goshen Farm 2016 Spring Open House

A record-breaking 600+ visitors attended Goshen Farm’s Spring Open House on April 23, 2016.  The nearly doubling of attendance over previous Open Houses was due in part to several wonderful articles in Bay Weekly about the Goshen Farm Apiary and beekeepers. In addition, Wendi Winters’ in her last Around Broadneck column in The Capital mentioned her work with Goshen Farm over the years and the upcoming Open House. The beautiful posters designed by Color Fire Marketing also got people’s attention.

We owe a big thank you to all of the friends and neighbors our came out for the open house and the volunteers who set up, brought cookies and sweets for the event, cooked burgers and hotdogs, greeted visitors, gave tours of the house and grounds, and cleaned up after the event.  Special thanks to Dirk Schwenk and Trekki Jones for the wonderful music and donated time.  Boy Scout Troop 2214 provided road and parking control, and they are the ones who counted 301 cars come up the driveway.  Girl Scout Cadet Troop 2027 volunteered to show other kids (and adults) to make butter and colonial period toys.

Last but not least, thank you Victoria Garbesi for your portrayal of Margaret Sinchcomb Tydings and Brian Hissong for capturing it all on video.
