Thanks to our volunteers for their many hours of service, to all who attended last night's event and to the youth orchestra under the direction of Charles Efurd for the wonderful entertainment they provided.

A Cheery Christmas at the Cabin

Over sixty visitors enjoyed refreshments and entertainment at the Historical Society's annual "Christmas at the Cabin" Sunday afternoon. With the temperature at 80 degrees, there was no roaring fire in the fireplace, but flickering candles and plenty of greenery made the cabin festive. It took many folks to make the day a success- the talented students who led us in caroling, the Society officers and vounteers who hosted the event, the guests who brought life into the old cabin. Thanks to all!

Catch us next Saturday from 10-2  at the bazaar at Curves on the Square. We'll be selling notecards with original art, our 50th anniversary cookbook, Old Jail ornaments, and the beautiful history of the Rox school, "If These Rocks Could Talk."
