Troubadour to Entertain at Sweet Treats Social. Please join the Historical Society of Easton and Easton's Parks and Recreation Department, co-sponsors, for a special sweet treat social at the historic Bradley Hubbell Homestead on Sunday, September 7th from 2 PM to 4 PM. Enjoy a late summer afternoon overlooking the bountiful Bradley garden and the graceful Hemlock Reservoir with music, children's crafts, farm demonstrations and refreshing treats. Renowned Connecticut's first "Official State Troubadour" Tom Callinan has composed an entertaining song about the Bradley's family farming history which he plans on debuting at the social event. Tom will regale us with music from yesteryear including popular songs from the colonial and Revolutionary War period. The 19th Century cider press housed in the barn will be featured in a demonstration showing how apples were pressed for the production of cider, a popular beverage especially during apple picking season. Children can visit the crafts table for hands-on fun creating apple prints, a special memory of their afternoon at the Bradley-Hubbell Homestead. Plus, all can tickle their taste buds with refreshing nutritious and delicious yogurt treats courtesy of Red Mango of Fairfield, CT.
