On Victoria Day afternoon, May 20 The Grist Mill Heritage Club will host an open mike musical event in the gardens of the Grist Mill.

Admission to the grounds will be free on Victoria Day which is also the opening day for the 2013 season.

Historic site hours are 9 to 5, 7 days a week. Regular admission is $7 and $5 for students and seniors.

The Heritage Club invites regional and local musicians  to the porch of the tea room or to the outdoor kitchen stage.

Visitors will  enjoy the lush, tree lined Keremeos Creek that cascades past the 1877 flour mill constructed by Barrington Price. The mill is completing  a further antiquity restoration by architect, Cuyler Page.

Musicians, singers, chorale ensembles or any lively entertainer is welcome to contact The Grist Mill at 250-499-2888 and ask to sign up for one or two  20 minute sets.

Sound systems will be up and ready for the afternoon.

With this week’s opening, site manager  Chris Mathieson is also  seeking some help.

Mathieson is looking at filling the position of Tea Room Manager

Because of the nature of the site, all applicants should be prepared to provide assistance in other areas of the site’s operations; you might need to serve some tables, give a tour or help our Head Gardener work in the gardens. This is a full-time seasonal position; days and hours of work will vary depending on the needs of the site and so we’re looking for applicants who can be flexible.
