~On Saturday, April 08, 2023, the organization that runs the harness racing at the Shenandoah ~County Fairgrounds hosted an Easter Egg Hunt for youngsters prior to the start of harness ~racing that afternoon. We were asked to bring our barrel train which we did and we also ~opened our museum building for several hours. This was the 2023 debut for the barrel train ~and the barrels were pretty much filled on every run. Below are some pictures of the event.

~Need a new birdhouse? We have high quality, heavy duty, Amish made birdhouses that ~have been imported from Kinzers, PA. They are pictured above. They were specifically ~designed for Bluebirds and/or Tree Swallows. You can purchase one or more of these at ~any of the events that we attend, at our museum building when it is open, by contacting ~any of the people listed in the "Contact" information which is on this website or by calling ~me or my wife at 540-459-7768. If you call and get the answering machine, please leave ~a message with your phone number. We will return your call. Thank you.
~Pictured below is our club barrel and seven other barrels that have been sponsored by local ~businesses. The Rockingham and the Markley barrels were being painted at the time of the ~event so they were not in the train on Saturday. They are here now and will be added to the ~train for any future events. We thank all of our sponsors for their support.
