27, 2015 — 10 am to 4 pm
planning a great party at the Alexandria Fairgrounds. Join us
and help us celebrate our 25th Anniversary. Lots of fun is
being planned for the entire family.
Plans are well underway for our
celebration event. At the current time we are working on the site layout,
displays, and activities for one and all. The event will be free to the
public. Here are some of the activities and displays
we plan to offer:
Groups - Civil War Displays – Quilting Exhibit – DAR Display of
Historic Homes – Tractor Show –
Vintage Car Cruise-in – Greenline Bus – Fire Truck and Safety – Women’s
Exhibit (Wedding Dresses -
Textiles – Accessories – Home Items) – Military Display – Genealogy -
Vintage Photographs – Digitized
Photograph Display - Wine Tasting – Food and Beverages – Anniversary
CCH&GS Members (free) & Paying Guests – Face Painting –
Children’s Activities – Tipi Exhibit - Live Music
and Square Dancing Performers.
We are doing our best to keep
our costs down and will be selling ads for our program for the day. We would
like to suggest that you consider a family or business ad to be listed
in the program - more
on that later. What
we are in need of at the present time are artifacts or antique items
you may have that could be used in our displays. We
will be housing precious items in the new Floral Hall at the
items will be under lock and key and many will not be placed there
until the morning of
our event. The hall will be manned throughout the day. Right now we
would like to know if
you have anything to show, examples of items would be antique dresser
sets, vintage wedding or regular dresses, knitted,
embroidered or crochet items (you may even submit a photograph of the person
who made the items), folk art of any kind or anything else you feel
would be of interest to
the general public. You may contact me or leave a message for me at the
CCH&GS office (859) 635-6407.
I have one last request. As you
know “many hands make light work” and we would love to have more
volunteers to help us with our celebration. If you feel you have some
time to spare and would
like to be involved either in the preliminary work or on the day of the
celebration, please give
us a call and we will be most appreciative for your help.
Don’t forget to SAVE THE DATE:
June 27, 2015!
