Liam Richards, 5, who lives in the Hillsdale lake area, enjoyed watching John King of Glasswater Lead Free Lures make a custom fishing lure for him.

April 28 was Mildale Farm’s Spring Community Day, one of two days annually that the facility is open to the public. There is another community day in the fall. Visitors enjoyed the warm spring day with picnics, fishing and exploration of the 1,578 acre property.
