Don't forget the Flax Scutching!

The 107th Annual Flax Scutching Festival is being held this weekend in Stahlstown. Sunday's schedule begins with a worship service at 9 a.m. There's music throughout the day, along with demonstrations of the art of turning flax plants into linen cloth; food and craft booths throughout the festival grounds; Civil War re-enactors; Boy Scouts making fresh cider, and a nice display of antique tractors. Fresh buckwheat pancakes and sausage will be available all day. If you've never seen flax scutched, this is the time!
