             June 27, 2015 — 10 am to 2 pm   

The Historical Society is 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:

Veteran 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 Dinner for 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 fairgrounds. 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!

The Veterans Data Project

One of the most successful projects of the historical society has been the collection of information on Campbell County Veterans. With forms continuing to pour in, the project has already produced dozens of binders filled with data on veterans from every war. Many people have attached copies of important documents, pictures and other information relating to the veteran's service. Several other historical societies are considering duplicating the project in their area.

If you or your ancestor served in the military and also lived one or more years in Campbell County, we would like to add your information to our list of honored veterans. Please use the link below to access the Veterans form.
