    Lusscroft Farm will host "300 Years of History — the American Revolution and my Family" by Frank Hennion — a fascinating presentation about American History and the Revolutionary War.

He brings to life their experiences with events in our American History.

Admission is $5 per person and funds raised go toward restoration projects at this historic farm. There are no advance tickets. Pay at the door in cash or check only.
