What’s happening at the Sturgeon House this summer? So glad you asked!
For the rest of June we are processing new acquisitions… World War I uniforms, a flapper’s dress, official papers from the Civil War and much more. We have been blessed with recent donations! (See the photo in our last post.)
We will be celebrating the old Fairview Borough as it celebrated its 100th anniversary in 1968. It was a week of fun and activities and is all captured in photos for the public in our exhibit room.
And… if you have good stuff you can barely part with, but, oh well, let someone else enjoy it… our terms are easy. Call us at 814 474-5855 and leave your name and number.
And, if the weather is right, their WWII jeep, “The Ramblin’ Wreck,” will be on the grounds, waiting for them. The dates are Saturday, August 18 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday, August 19 from Noon to 4 p.m.
All events at the Sturgeon House this summer are free and open to the public. Anyone wanting a tour when the Sturgeon House is not open may call us at 814-474-5855 and leave a name and number. We will be happy to arrange a visit for you.
We will be there, probably serving ice cream, manning a table with a few old things on display, selling quilt tickets, and generally, enjoying the afternoon also. We are hoping this event on Labor Day will become one of the community’s traditional events, just as our own Ice Cream Social once did.
This sounds like a GREAT SUMMER. And then, just wait until you hear what we are planning for the fall!!!!
