Pillowcase Dress Sew-a-thon Event Details

Close
9:00 am

All are welcome to participate in a Pillowcase Dress Sew-a-thon, to be held on Monday, April 7, 9 a.m., St. Lawrence Hall, Rhine (east of Botkins, on Botkins Road). The event is sponsored by the Social Justice Commission of the Petersburg Parishes of Botkins Immaculate Conception, Wapakoneta St. Joseph, and Rhine St. Lawrence churches.
The Sew-a-thon is the second sponsored by the Social Justice Commission in less than a month. States Commission representative Rachel Barber, "The first Sew-a-thon was so successful and the participants had such a great time, they wanted to know right away when we'd organize another session." Barber explains that forty of the dresses from the first sew-a-thon have already been sent to Haiti, while the remainder will go to Tanzania.
Area seamstresses are invited to bring their sewing machines for a fun morning of making simple dresses and shorts to send abroad with Christian missionaries to children who may never have received new clothing before. Those who can’t sew are still welcome to cut out fabric and help in other ways. Lunch will be provided to participants.
Those attending are also welcome to bring remnants and new or very gently used pillowcases (all or mostly cotton, please), as well as buttons, ribbon, any notions that might be used to “trim” the clothing. Those with questions, should call Rachel Barber at 419/738-4924 or Patty Mack at 937/693-3163.

The St. Marys Community Partnership is again sponsoring the Bunny Trail in 2014. Last year, the trail had around 300 participants, collected over 300 cans of food for Agape instead of an entry fee, and was able to provide the kids of the area a wonderful time, and awarded over 43 prizes in the Big Prize Giveaway for completing the Bunny Trail. This year, we are planning the trail for Saturday, April 19, 2014.

Registration for the trail will begin at 9:00 a.m. at K-Mart on Indiana Avenue. The trail will run from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., at which time they will gather at Woodland Rollerdome for FREE skating and other fun activities, and then the Big Prize Give-away at 2:30 p.m. At the Rollerdome, the participants will turn in their completed trail map ticket at that time for a chance to win in the Big Prize Giveaway and be drawn to possibly be awarded one of the many gifts and/or bicycles available. Children must be present at the Big Prize Giveaway to win.

If you have any questions, please contact Jen Cromwell / Bunny Trail Chairman, at either (419) 305-8499 or email her at 4cromwells@gmail.com.

Log House Dinners Event Details

Close
6:00 pm

The Auglaize County Historical Society will Log House Dinners at 6 p.m., Friday, April 25, and Saturday, April 26, at the Gary Log House (c. 1850) on the Auglaize County Fairgrounds in Wapakoneta. Local residents are invited to explore what life was like in Auglaize County around the time that the Miami and Erie Canal was completed. They’ll then enjoy a hearty meal prepared according to the recipes and methods of the 1840s.

The menu for the Log House Dinner will include Smoked Ham, Baked Beans, Nutmeg-Glazed Carrots, Coal-Roasted Potatoes, Cold Slaw, Sally Lunn Yeast Rolls with Fresh-Churned Butter, and Brandied Peaches with Vanilla Ice Cream.

States dinner organizer and Historical Society trustee Christopher Burton, “Not only is the Log House Dinner the perfect opportunity to support the Historical Society, but it’s also a great way to experience history like never before. Guests can expect to get their hands into some historic demonstrations and even help prepare the meal that they will be eating. It becomes a much more memorable experience that just reading about this time period in a book.”

The price is $30 per person for Historical Society Members and $35 per person for non-members. Seating is limited to 20 persons per evening.

To purchase tickets, please contact the Auglaize County Historical Society at (419)738-9328 or auglaizecountyhistory@bright.net or visit the Armstrong Air & Space Museum. The deadline for reservations is Friday, April 18, or until the dinners are sold out.

Founded in 1963, the Auglaize County Historical Society collects, preserves, interprets, and shares the history of Auglaize County and its people through exhibits, programs, and publications. The Auglaize County Historical Society is now on Facebook, too!
