Fun(d) Raiser....Sharon Historical Society

Last evening we attended an "Early Buying Cocktail Party"  for benefit of The Sharon Historical Society. Held under two fairly sizable tents on the back and side lawns at the society, one got to see and purchase everything from antiques from the 1700's to items from today. All of the items were donated from members of the organization, towns people, and a fairly local business. There were 50¢ items and items in the hundreds of dollars. The turnout was a nice size, and I would guess there was probably 125 to 150 people there, but I am only guessing. There was an entry charge to attend this function, so that also helped to raise more funds. We came home with a floor lamp and gift to be named later. We had a nice time and enjoyed the evening with friends afterwards back at our house on the screened-in porch. A nice summer night I think, was had by all....

The sale was open to the public today and tomorrow at no charge, and I hope that the organization did well. I admire this organization, its leadership and members. They work hard to preserve and teach our towns history to those who inquire and for that I am grateful.

Lots of folks , all looking for that "special" something...

Discussing items...

Hats...Hats, and more hats!
