The Edmonton-Metcalfe County Chamber of Commerce conducted a Business after Hours on Tuesday, June 18, 2014, hosted by Mario and Raven Rodgers, owners of Roger's Mill.
The historic and beautiful Rogers Mill, located at 1199 Wilbur Glass Road in the Randolph Community of southern Metcalfe County, is one of Metcalfe's "best kept secrets". Mario and Raven have opened the mill property for rental for weddings, showers, family gatherings, business seminars, etc. Their ultimate goal is open a school teaching persons how to use herbs and nature's plants for medicinal purposes.
Persons attending the Business after Hours had the option of riding a four wheel drive vehicle or walking down the pathway to the mill setting. Even for those not quite as fit as they would like, the walk down to the mill area was not too taxing. The walk back up caused some to be quite breathless!
Those in attendance, especially those who were there for the first time, could not believe the beauty and tranquility of their surroundings. Everyone toured the grounds including the mill building, the blacksmith shop and the pavilion.
Among those at the the event were Dollie Mae Jones, Connie Shive, Sylvia Sidebottom, Carol Chaney, Roger Chaney, Faye White, Alicia Reed, Harold Stilts, Kenny Scott, Patricia Stilts, Kim Smith, Raven and Mario Rodgers, Chris Huffman, Greg Wilson, Christi Wilson, Freeda Reece, Carlie Howard, Lorrie Gilpin, Jamie Howard, and Jim Tsukagoshi Lemonade and cookies were served from the pavilion.
The mill and grounds are available by appointment only. Contact: Rodgers at 270-590-1370 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
