DOWNTOWN AKRON — The Mustill Store, operated by the Cascade Locks Park Association (CLPA), opened for the season April 5 with a special event for visitors. The restored canal store and museum is shown above in the background as Milla Zaman, 6, of Stow, participates in an Easter egg hunt activity.

Visitors also enjoyed music and learned more about the Canalway Questing program. Louis Berry and Bob and Sandra Kouth, shown at right, from left, were among the volunteers assisting that day.

Paul Kirschbaum and his granddaughter, Olivia Kirschbaum, are pictured below as they enjoy lunch at the event.

With the advent of spring, the Mustill Store is now open seven days a week, according to CLPA officials. The store at 248 Ferndale St. is open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The site, located along the Towpath Trail at the Ohio & Erie Canal, includes exhibits on canal history.

Volunteers also are needed, with more information available at 330-374-5625 or at www.cascadelocks.org.
