1/30/19 CLOSED FOR THE DAY

New Farm Display

Sometimes you just have to ask to receive.  I was talking with Kathy Scheier (Pres. of the Kingston Historical Society) at the library the other day, about doing a farm display for our County Wide Read in Sept.  I asked her if the Historical Society might have some things we could borrow for the display.
