Open Hearth Dinner

On Friday night we had another successful Open Hearth Dinner!  Believe it or not, this was our 8th annual dinner.  How time flies.

It was a lovely night, as always, with delightful guests, great volunteers, delicious food, and holiday cheer!  The menu included homemade bread, pumpkin soup, fried chicken, bubble & squeak (red cabbage, apples, bacon, onions, brown sugar, and vinegar), green beans, and homemade apple pie.

If you're wondering why you never see this event advertised, it's because we sell it out every year!

Street of Shops under construction!

If you're not a fan on Facebook, you're missing a lot of wonderful "Historic Photo of the Week" opportunities!

This is the photo I posted this morning, showing the Street of Shops under construction in the 1980s:

Only the fireplace in what would become the Cabin is finished!  You can see the lines on the floor where the Doctor's Office sticks out, and where the horse prints would be near the door too.

I picked this photo for this week because that fireplace is going to get a work out on Friday -- our annual Open Hearth Dinner is this week!  It is completely SOLD OUT, as it is every year.

Here are some images of that area of the Street today, for comparison:
