First Footin’

When: Wed., Jan. 1, 10 a.m. 2014

It’s Day One of 2014 and you don’t know how to spend it? Ponder heading to Rural Hill’s annual First Footin.’ The event, rooted in the Scottish tradition of Hogmanay, is a celebration of good health, crops and fortune for the coming year. The day kicks off with a five-mile trail run and is followed by a group walk around Rural Hill’s grounds. Along the way you’ll hear related history and folklore and then gather around a campfire for some warm “stone” soup. Free admission, but contribution to the lunch is encouraged (list of items needed: fresh or canned vegetables for the soup, bread, dessert, beverages, bowls, plates, napkins and other eating utensils). Run begins at 10 a.m.; walk at 11 a.m. For more information, visit www.ruralhill.net/firstfootin.asp. (Anita Overcash)
