Attendees of the Harvest Home celebration at Baltimore Woods pose outside the nature center's log cabin with the straw manikin they helped create.
continued Tom Meier, the public program coordinator of Baltimore Woods who partnered with the Bromkas to make the event possible, was excited to be able to bring the old log cabin alive once again. He stated that his intentions are to “Build up a community around the log cabin” in order to improve and enjoy it. “It’s a good time of year [for this event],” to celebrate “the pioneer lifestyle. John and Sondra have a wealth of knowledge about the traditions.”
As far as traditions go, Meier would love the Harvest Home to be an annual event. “Years ago we had many festivals, and we’re trying to bring that back.” He is hopeful that this will “grow into something special.”
An exhibition of the Bromka’s hand-carved instruments is showing at the Wilson Art Gallery of LeMoyne College through Dec. 16.
