Shown at right bottom is Beth Goran, of Kent, with coworkers Fred Kraus (at left), of Fairlawn, and Jason Klein, of Peninsula, after demonstrating the workings of a maple syrup evaporator to visitors at the festival.

The festival continues March 23-24 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Pancakes are served until 3 p.m. and are included in admission to the festival. Hale Farm is located at 2686 Oak Hill Road. For more information, call 330-666-3711 or go to www.wrhs.org.
