MonDak Heritage Center's New Summer Event, Summer Bash & Bake Off, June 24

The MonDak Heritage Center is celebrating summer with a new, free event for the entire family, Saturday, June 24 from 1-3 p.m. This is going to be a fun-filled day with everything from storytelling to pie eating!

Starting in the morning, register for Genealogy 101. In this workshop, participants will learn how to research their family history. This class will also include a workshop from professional storyteller Mo Reynolds on how to create and tell your family story. Mo will lead the group in a process that will take family information from research to story! Please call ahead to register for this class.

The Summer Bash & Bake Off officially begins at 1 p.m. Bring a baked good (or two) and enter in the Bake Off while listening to local musicians play together in a jam session! All baked goods will be judged and prizes will be awarded to the winner of each category and to an overall Grand Champion! Once items are judged, everyone will be able to purchase a sample of these delicious treats and buy raffle tickets to take home an entire winning dessert!

Do you have a family recipe or food that is part of your heritage? Bring it to the Summer Bash & Bake Off and add it to our Heritage Food Table. Samples from this table will be free for attendees to taste and will showcase the food heritage of the MonDak. Bake or cook your favorite family recipe or something from your heritage and bring it on June 24 so that a portion of your family legacy can be showcased at this event!

Be ready to cheer on local celebrities and heroes in the Pie Eating Contest at 2 p.m. The goal of this contest is to eat an entire pie as fast as possible with no hands. Participants include a MDHC board member, deputy sheriff, police officer, fireman, and Sidney Mayor. Then at 3 p.m., Mo Reynolds will be onstage engaging and amazing the audience with her stories of folk tales and fables! In Mo’s presentation, the audience is a part of the story. Come witness the connection between personal narratives and imagination!

While at the Summer Bash & Bake Off, be sure to glaze a ceramics project for only $10! This walk-in class is perfect for all ages. Participants will choose a ceramic item from the wide selection from pickups to unicorns and glaze the project. MDHC staff will fire the projects and individuals can pick them up the following week.
