Is there a way to know what is going on in the way of classes before they are sold out, all 3 that are coming up thru Dec. are sold out by the time I knew about them. thanks
As a former resident of the group home back in the 80s that place was not all heaven and some staff members there pretending to be sweet but they weren’t you know who you are Ellen Tim Larry and Cynthia who held me down and pinch my nose to the point where I almost passed out because they were angry about something and they call themselves Christians and one of them went on to be a social worker I’m talking to a lawyer and I think Saint johns had a lot of abuse but look at the Catholic Church
Help please. I have cleaned and my recipe for baking my apple strudel has gone missing. What temp and time should I bake my frozen strudel? Thank-you.
might be a cool place to visit

What a wonderful tour last night. Every year this gets better and better. Good Job!
We visited the Museum this afternoon for tea and a snack, then an amazing tour of the Museum. Tea will be served on Saturdays from 1-4PM thru December 29th.
I want to thank all the ladies who gave their time and expertise to teach us how to make strudel today. It nice to learn something new and fun when there are such great people to work with-both those leading the class and the participants.
Strawberry Hill Museum and Cultural Center is in Kansas's new afternoon tea directory from Destination Tea (www.destinationtea.com/kansas)! #KSAfternoonTea
Keep me posted for more class openings - crochet, knitting, egg decorating and quilting.
