Demonstration Days

As a precautionary measure surrounding the Covid-19 virus and following the directive passed down from the governor’s office regarding special events and gatherings, Marshall Gold Discovery SHP has postponed all Demonstration Days until further notice.

In celebration of the centennial of the passage of the 19th amendment, which guarantees and protects women’s constitutional right to vote, Marshall Gold Discovery SHP will host a year-long exploration of the domestic skills historically performed by women. On the second Saturday of each month, the history and techniques of a domestic skill will be explored and demonstrated. Materials and instruction will be provided to participants who wish to learn or hone their skills in that discipline.
