We had another good Sunday afternoon at the historical society museum this past week with Jackie Dufore entertaining us. She is gifted in music and writing songs.

Elizabeth Melvin, who is a docent at the museum, will have the special program today. She sings and plays the piano featuring different types of songs. She has been with us before.

It was necessary that we change the Nov. 29, program because those scheduled are going out of town. Therefore, Yukyee Chan, an exchange student from China, will show here talent of playing the piano.

She is a senior in high school and is staying with the Cleary family as her host. We are anxious to meet her and hear her performance.

Sunday, Nov. 22, the Rock Hill Alumni Band, under the direction of Rhonda Pemberton as their director will be playing at 2 p.m. at the museum at Sixth and Adams streets. These will be members of the past band.

We hope you, as the public, will come and join us enjoying the talent we have scheduled for you at the museum.

The museum will be closed Saturday, Nov. 14, for the annual Victorian Tea. The committee is busy preparing for this outstanding event. On Nov. 13 and 15, we will be open to the public as usual.

Christmas season is really here. Come visit the museum and especially the military room, which is done in red, white and blue. We will be open until Dec. 13.

Remember the gifts available for sale and there is still apple butter waiting for you. Come celebrate the Christmas season with the Lawrence County Historical Society.
