Mary's Little Lost Lamb Painting Contest is returning on Sunday, May 1st to the front lawn of the Keeler Tavern Museum at 132 Main Street, Ridgefield.. The one room school houses of Colonial Ridgefield were supported by sheep. Two thousand sheep owned by the town were rented out to the highest bidders to cut their grass and provide natural fertilizer.. Financing the schools has always called for creative thinking. The Museum will supply unpainted plywood lambs. Small lambs will cost $15 and large lambs $25. The lambs may be purchased at the Museum in April during regular business hours 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM Mondays through Fridays and Saturday, April 16th 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM. Lambs should be returned to the Museum, Sunday May 1st from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM.. Judging will take place from 4:00 PM to 4:30 PM. Awards will be made in four categories: Artistic, Realistic, Original, and Whimsical. Lambs will be judged at three levels: Children under 10 years old, Children over 10 and Adult (over 18). Lambs will remain on view on the Keeler Tavern Museum front lawn and then will be returned to their creators.
