From staff reports

---- — Vintage cars, tractors, bicycles, old fashion crafts and food will fill the grounds around the Empire Heritage Museum Complex on Oct. 13 from 1 to 4 p.m. Other activities include a live blacksmith and other demonstrations, Heritage Day organizers said. Other live demonstrations include making apple cider, ice cream, butter, apple butter, maple sugar candy, sauerkraut, and surveying, using turn-of-the-century methods.

Ross Richardson, discoverer of the Westmoreland, will show the first footage of the "Rescue" (a steam excursion boat sunk in Glen Lake in 1914). The boat is resting in 120 feet of water in the middle of Big Glen Lake. Richardson will autograph and sell his new book "The Search for the Westmoreland".

A queen-sized quilt made by the "fire house quilters" will be raffled at 3 p.m. to benefit the Glen Lake Fire Department.
