Past Events in 2021:

The day before Homecoming, on Friday, July 16th, 2021, we had a Hog Roast Party along with an open house at The Greenfield House and our silent auction.

 

Unfortunately, the weather did not allow us to have live music.  The food was $10.00 a plate. In addition, a silent auction was held on July 16 and 17th to help in raising funds to complete the renovation of the Greenfield House. We were lucky to have the crowning of the Homecoming Queens for 2020 and 2021.  

 

On Saturday, July 17th, 2021, the Society was an active participant in the Homecoming celebration. Tours of the Museum and The Greenfield House were conducted.

 

On September 25, 2021, the Annual Tombstone Tour and Town Tales event was held.  This year ticket prices were $10.00 at the gate.

 

An Autumn Craft Show was held Friday, October 22, 2021 & Saturday, October 23, 2021 at the Greenfield House. We had items to sell for fundraising.  There were fellow crafters at the event that were able to rent table space.
