Museum Open House/Chicken BBQ

We held our 6th Annual Museum Open House/Chicken Barbecue on Saturday, September 23, 2017.

 

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

 

Also, on top of that, it was a beautiful fall, sunny day.

History Quiz

During the Open House/Chicken BBQ, a history quiz regarding Sugar Valley was given in the Bull Run School by Chuck Sweeny.  The questions were taken from the 125th, 150th, and 175th Anniversary Books. 

 

John Carey was the winner of the contest.  In the photo, Chuck is presenting John with a certificate for his knowledge of Sugar Valley.  John also received a book of his choice that the Historical Society is selling.

 

Following are the 20 questions on the quiz.  See how many you can answer correctly.  The book and page numbers from which the questions were taken are listed after each question.  The actual answers will  appear in the next newsletter publication and on this website after the newsletter is published.
