Shacksboro Museum to host Easter-theme events

The Museum at the Shacksboro Schoolhouse invites you to step back in time and enjoy a Victorian Bunny Tea at noon Saturday April 16 at the Schoolhouse Museum, 46 Canton St. in Baldwinsville.

The event is designed for one adult, one child, and one bunny (bunny is optional). While sipping tea and nibbling Victorian pastries and delicacies, guests will be entertained and enlightened by Ms. Fran Sylvester-Nightengale, who will talk about the history and etiquette of the noon tea service. Seating for this is extremely limited, so call 638-2452 to inquire about availability.

At 2 p.m., there will be a Vintage Hat and Easter Bonnet Contest. There is no limited availability for this event, just show up at the museum with your favorite bonnet. A small fee will be collected at the door. Two grand prizes will be awarded. Children entering this contest will also be allowed to join in the Easter Egg Hunt, which follows.

The Easter Egg Hunt will begin at 2:30 p.m. in McHarrie Park, adjacent to the museum building. Parents may bring children directly to the park and pay a slight admission at the door. Children will hunt for specially wrapped silver and gold eggs for special prizes. All the weary hunters will be invited into the museum for refreshments following. Call 638-2452 for more details.
