I have made some more new flags for the Sanderson High School color guard. I made two sets of flags for the girls, but I only have pictures of one.

Back to the Mill, I'm very excited about it. It has been fully restored, and you can buy corn that has been ground there, using granite mill stones and a water wheel--there's no electricity. It was also equipped to grind wheat, and that has also been restored, but it is not used because part of that system is closed, so it cannot be cleaned adequately for FDA approval. We assist with the tours, and we are being trained to do more parts of the corn grinding tour as well as some of the other tours.
In December, Santa will be at the Mill for pictures, and there will be some kids' activities and craft sales as well as Dickens Christmas carolers--me and Jon and a new friend we made! A few other people may join us, but it's just us so far. We're also hoping to start a dance class in the visitor center, teaching the same types of dances that we used to do with Old Glory Vintage Dancers. I really hope we get approval for that!
