On March 17, Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds declared a statewide public health disaster emergency in response to the state's coronavirus outbreak. The proclamation includes the restriction of in-person gatherings of 10 or more people along with the temporary closing of several businesses in the arts, culture and entertainment sector.

Most of the public gatherings listed on the Hoopla calendar are canceled or postponed through the end of April. Please check with event organizers to confirm the status of events you see listed.

A virtual option has been created to post and search for those events and programs that are offering an online gathering opportunity for our Hoopla readers. Enjoy!

Event Description

This class will expand upon the content covered in last month’s Backyard Maple Syrup Making program.  You will get more detail on the uniqueness of the maple tree and its sweet sap.  History of maple sugaring will be explored, and some time will be spent in the sugar house gaining an understanding of the process in more detail from one of Indian Creek’s own sugar masters. This program will meet at the Penningroth Barn (intersection of Otis and Bertram Roads). Fee: $4 per person.
