After years of storing their artifacts here, there, and everywhere, Ben Haines is ready to take them home.
Or at the very least, show where they will eventually be.
Haines, president of the Cecil County Farm Museum, and the rest of the museum volunteers are hosting an event at the new museum home, 912 Appleton Road, Elkton, the former Basell property on June 21.
The event will feature the farm museum's inaugural antique, classic, car, truck, tractor, and farm machinery show. The show will run from 9 a.m. until about 5 p.m.
"We want to show off the site and recruit new members," said Haines.
Food will be provided by a caterer with proceeds to benefit the Cecil County Farm Museum.
In addition to being a fun event, Haines said the focus is on education. A blacksmith has signed on to provide a demonstration and a table display. Haines is seeking others who maybe collect bottles, cooking utensils or other memorabilia to share who would be willing to put up a display.
There may be entertainment or other surprises.
Anyone who is interested in providing a display of machinery, equipment, or agriculture artifacts during the show is asked to call Ben Haines at 302-545-3657.
