Open House/Chicken BBQ

 

We held our 7th Annual Museum Open House/Chicken Barbecue on Saturday, September 22, 2018.

 

Visitors toured the museum and Bull Run one-room school and enjoyed the chicken barbecue meal.

 

The day's event was a great success thanks to society members, volunteers, and our Amish friends who cooked the chicken.

 

Following are some photos taken the day of the Open House:

Pictured above and seated from left to right are some members of the Sugar Valley High School class of 1955:    Suzanne Hancock Gilbert, Norma Stamm Miller, Eunice Moyer Jeffries, Shelva Snook Brubaker, Beulah Quiggle Neff, and Gene Roberts.  These youngsters meet once a month at a different place for their class reunion.  For the past couple of years in September, they have chosen the Open House as their outing.   This year marks 63 years since they graduated.

CONGRATULATIONS!

Old Hand Tool Contest

During the Open House/Chicken BBQ on September 22, 2018, a quiz was once again administered by Charles Sweeny in the one-room school.  This year’s contest was called “The Old Hand Tool Contest.”

 

Grady Leiter prepared a peg board and John Carey offered to display 11 of his personal old hand tools.  A blank sheet of paper numbered 1 through 11 was distributed to visitors to compete for the contest.

 

Jerry Miller was the winner with 8 correct answers.  Pictured above is Charles Sweeny presenting Jerry Miller with a certificate for his knowledge of old tools.  Jerry also received a book of his choice sold by the Sugar Valley Historical Society.
