CASPIAN—The Classic Farm Machinery Group of Iron County will display antique farm tractors at the June 1 grand opening of the Iron County Museum, according to President Bill Trotter.
The group also plans to demonstrate an old-time working hand pump and other antique equipment that used to be used “in the good old days.”
Many other activities are also slated for grand opening day, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Golden K club members will serve a pancake brunch at 10:30 a.m., and the West End Players will provide a skit about Carrie Jacobs Bond, former area songwriter and composer.
A 50th anniversary recognition of the Carrie Jacobs Bond Composing Threaders will take place on the front porch of the Bond house, located on the museum grounds. That group has consistently made quilts as a way to raise funds to assist in the maintenance of the Bond home.Four charter members still involved are Clarice Cocco, Carol Erickson, Jean Lindbeck and Avie Powell.
Paid admission for the day includes the pancake brunch for a cost of $8 for adults, $7 for seniors with children and youth free with a paying adult. All are also encouraged to visit the newly organized gift shop with its variety of new items for the summer season.
“The museum has scheduled many new and interesting programs relating to its 50 year history,”said a spokesperson.
