Heirlooms – Inside and Out
September 10 from 12 – 2 PM at Sedalia’s Museum, join us for the 4th annual Tomato Tasting and for Canyon Quilters’ needlework demonstration.
At the Tasting, you will savor more than 50 tomato varieties grown by gardeners in our area, such as Brandywines, like those Thomas Jefferson grew, and the Sedalia Mystery, grown from seeds saved her in 2015. After tasting heirlooms, look inside the Museum to see Canyon Quilters create heirlooms of a different kind. Click here for details.
John Machann Memorial Scholarships Awarded
The John Machann Memorial Scholarship has been awarded to two local college freshmen. Their entries were so outstanding that the scholarship committee decided to reward them both. Kaylea Horacek of Hier North and Kelly Winn of Oak Valley both submitted essays about Sedalia, its history and how it has affected their lives. Each young woman was presented with a check for $500 by Barbara Machann, administrator of the scholarship. Kaylea is attending CSU in Ft. Collins; Kelly will be at CU-Boulder.
