At our annual summer celebration during Stow Pride Week, we had a day full of fun and learning! The Community Jazz Band performed, as did the Morning Star bluegrass trio; we gave a historical walking tour of Stow Corners; there was a Beginning Beekeeping demonstration; free ice cream pops provided by Handel's Ice Cream; and a Petting Zoo and farm-related children's activities in the evening! Wow!
