EDINBURG FALL FESTIVAL – SATURDAY – SEPTEMBER 29, 10 AM TO 3 PM
Come join us for the Edinburg Fall Festival on Saturday, September 29th. Delicious homemade soups, chili and a bake sale with pies, cookies, breads and all kinds of treats will be available. There will be a blacksmith demonstration by Colin Roy. George McCleery will play old favorites on the pump organ he restored in the Rural museum.
We are excited to announce that the Rural Museum has been painted inside showing off more of the old items and things will be rearranged to create a more pleasing flow. The new Rural Museum building addition dedicated to fishing, trapping and hunting might not be completed yet because of lack of time but please stop by and check out our progress.
EHS is accepting applications from vendors and crafters for the Fall Festival. A 10% commission of sales is asked as a donation to help defray costs associated with the event. Information is online in a previous post.
The Society now owns the 205 year old Sand Hill One Room Schoolhouse on Tange Road donated by Roy Pearsall. Roy was a dedicated and generous member of the community who always took the time to educate others on this historic building. EHS hopes to reopen this structure for continued education opportunities. But the roof must be replaced before winter. EHS plans on using the proceeds from the Edinburg Fall Festival and donations from the public to accomplish this. Come enjoy the Fall Festival and help us keep history alive.
