Thanks to those who helped at the loaded baked potato booth at the McFarland Family Fesitval. Thanks to the parade walkers on Sunday and to the Lodi Steampunk group and Clay from Madison for walking with us to promote the McFarland Historical Society. We had quite a few visitors to the Larson House and Main Street Museums. Watch for us during Christmas in the Village and the Sunday afternoons in December. The Larson House will be decorated in Victorian finery for Christmas.
