At the November meeting of the Historical Society members discussed Thanksgiving memories and enjoyed pizza. In December the meeting will be the first Saturday of the month at 6 p.m. at Market Square Health Care Center where Mary Billings resides.
The society museum is a historical and cultural center for the area. The collections of local artifacts and art and antiques are truly fine. Do attend the meetings. They have a potluck supper and informative programs. The museum is building for the future though it deals with the past. Exhibits are saved today to be enjoyed by posterity. That way when you give something to the society you can be sure it will benefit future generations.
Remember at the Christmas party they exchange gifts. A woman for a woman and a man for a man. That's so everyone gets a gift.
Curator Larry Billings has a white church that lights up that he got at a yard sale. It looks like the Bryant Pond Baptist Church. A family dressed in winter clothing are in front.
