Yesterday, the Old Mission Peninsula Historical Society hosted their “Harvesting History” event, which took place at nine locations throughout the OMP.

Festivities started at 11 a.m., and the rain held off until around 2 p.m. It rained buckets for a short while, and then the blue skies and puffy clouds returned.
