CLEARFIELD – Members of the Clearfield Community Life-long Learning Institute (CCLLI) participated in an Utter to Butter and Other Heritage Skills program Nov. 1 at LHU Clearfield.
Butter making and many other heritage skills have fallen by the wayside. In this program, Carey Huber, environmental education specialist, and Eric Rensel, natural resource specialist, from Parker Dam State Park demonstrated several nearly forgotten skills, including butter making, ice harvesting, broom making, cidering, traditional children’s games, and others, while discussing the program opportunities that the park offers to visitors to learn about these not-so-often-used skills.
Pictured are regular attendees of CCLLI programs Nadine Bressler (Curwensville) and Phyllis Bauman (Clearfield).
The CCLLI is a collaboration between the Clearfield County Area Agency on Aging and Lock Haven University Clearfield. Free, or very low cost, courses are offered for baby boomers and older citizens.
