Jan. 12: Pioneer Park’s Second Saturday features camellia waxing, pine needle basketry and hominy making

Jeannette Frandsen demonstrates the old art of waxing camellias at Pioneer Park's Second Saturday Jan. 12, in Loachapoka, AL and Jean Kerr begins a second series of lessons in pine needle basket making. Weather permitting, Charles C. Mitchell demonstrates the art of making hominy over an open fire. The process is time-consuming, but was used in times past to transform dried corn into a nutritious food. All activities except the basket making classes begin at 11 a.m. EST (10 a.m. CST).
