It was a grey, but great day!
We have an opportunity to do a great winter paint out at the John R Park Homestead., Monday December 15th, 10:30 until? The gates open at 9:00 if you want to come early.
We don’t expect the weather to be this cold! weather reports say 49° F
The weather maybe cold so bundle up. Especially your feet and hands. The washroom barn will be open, and heated. They have a kitchen so you can make a warm drink. This will be our last opportunity at John R Park before they close for the winter on the 19th.

Please note that google has two locations for John R Park Homestead. The one in the town of Essex is incorrect. Don’t get lost! They are located near Harrow on Lake Erie. See the link above for accurate directions.
Do NOT use your GPS. Our members have gotten lost by using the GPS!!
