1719 Hans Herr House Museum Service Project
On Saturday April 24, 2021 the Rotary Club of Lancaster South sponsored a service project at the 1719 Hans Herr House Museum.  Tiffany Fisk, Administrator at the Hans Herr House welcomed us, and gave us a brief orientation to the site and a bit of its history. 
The task was to clear the overgrown kitchen garden, which was a patch of weeds when we began. By noon the group had filled 24 lawn and leaf bags and four wheelbarrows of weeds and the garden was completely cleared, ready for restoration as an exhibit of historic plants and gardening.  Another flower bed with a display of old mill stones was weeded as well.
 Six Rotarians, five members of the Lampeter Strasburg Interact club with their advisor, and one spouse, accomplished this work.  Ideas emerged for finding opportunities for future collaboration with the students in the Interact Club, as well as the possibility for continued partnership with the 1719 Hans Herr House Museum.  It really was an enjoyable morning, with wonderful spring weather in a beautiful setting, and good people to share the work.
