MOUNT VERNON— Ever wish you lived in a more innocent, peaceful era? Brewton-Parker College invites you to take a break from 21st century stress and travel back to 19th century rural Georgia Saturday, April 30, at the fourth annual Spring Festival at its Historic Village.
The free festival promises plenty of fun and hands-on activities for young and old. Churn butter, beat biscuits, make cornhusk dolls, enjoy toe-tapping old-time music, and say “how-do” to friendly goats and mules.
“We’ll also have a horse and chickens to give a real farm flavor to the village,” said Dr. Mary Waalkes, curator of the Historic Village.
The village will be open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. It is located behind Jones Lake on the Mount Vernon campus, off Highway 280.
Call Dr. Waalkes, 912-583-3110, or Anice McArthur, 912-583-2517, for more information.
Brewton-Parker College is the only accredited four-year Christian college in south Georgia.
The mission of Brewton-Parker College, a Georgia Baptist college, is to develop the whole student through the application of Biblically-centered truth to a liberal arts curriculum in a community of shared Christian values.
