February Newsletter

SCOTT COUNTY HISTORICAL SOCIETY

February Newsletter – 2019

Early February – the sun is shining brightly on the remaining piles of snow left over from those December and January snow storms.  For a while, it looked as though we would have snow hills on the back of every parking lot and vacant lot in town until spring, but there is noticeable thawing taking place now, and no snow in the immediate forecast.  But, Hey! It’s Kansas . . .

Since the last newsletter went out in early November, we haven’t had a chance to report on the great response we received from the Scott Community Foundation’s second annual Giving Day.  Thanks to your generous gifts, it was an excellent fundraiser for the historical society, adding $3,360.00 to our Foundation account.   Thanks to all who contributed through that unique event.

Many thanks, as well, for your help with the Sugar Plum Sale on December 16th.  The weather was fair, tables were loaded, and the crowd was good.  Actually, the crowd was early and eager!  By 2:00 p.m., the goodies were drastically reduced and late-comers were a bit disappointed to find limited selections.  It seemed like a long afternoon until we could finally draw for prizes.

Prizes were won by Karen Compton (Tava’s German Chocolate cake), Celia Fouser (Historical Society’s candy basket), Marilyn Dryer (Dean Fairchild’s handcrafted angel candleholder), Barb Dickhut (Suzy B’s Christmas fragrance infuser) and Tim and Jill Rust (Brenda Cejda’s ceramic Christmas tree.)

Proceeds for the sale were down a little from previous years, perhaps because some members who have often increased their checks that day, had just donated to the Giving Day in November.  All-told, our donations were very good this year and we are sincerely grateful for each and every gift.
