October 15 - Road trip to Morgan Log House in Kulpsville, PA.  Former Red Mill assistant director Tim Betz is now executive director of the Log House, built in 1704.  Tim Betz will share the stories of colonists, scrappy revolutionaries and those seeking opportunities in the New World who lived on the property.  We will carpool from behind the Clinton Town Municipal Building on the corner of Leigh Street.  We will depart at 9am and stop for lunch on the way home, returning home by midafternoon.  It is an easy 1 hour drive from Clinton to Kulpsville.

November 19 - Red Mill Museum assistant director Marie Salthouse presents Death and Dying in America.  Many common funeral and mourning customs of the 18th and 19th centuries seem strange and macabre to us today.  Special objects from the museum’s collection will be on view.
