Ray Historical Society to
feature barns at meeting
The Ray Township Historical Society will host "Building Barns" on Saturday, Oct. 5 at 10 a.m. in the Ray Township Senior Center, 64255 Wolcott Rd.
The event will combine the society's "Meet and Greet" for its 2014 calendar, titled "Farmscapes," and the Michigan Barn Preservation Network's Teamwork and Timbers program.
The morning event will include insight and historical backgrounds about the noteworthy barns and outbuildings within Ray Township as featured in the calendar and a brief presentation on barns by a member of the Michigan Barn Preservation Network.
Participants who are 10 years old and up can work together in an old-fashioned "barn raising" of a quarter size 19th century timber frame model barn on loan from the National Barn Alliance.
The public is invited to attend. Reservations are appreciated at (586) 784-9221 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Cider and donuts will be served.
The 2014 "Farmscapes" calendars will be available for purchase that morning for $10 each. Afterwards, calendars will be sold throughout the community, including the Ray Township Offices, Ray Township Public Library, and several local businesses.
A complete listing will be available on the society's website. Calendar sales support preservation projects in Ray Township.
