The Mt. Washington Fall Festival is coming up on September 24th, and we will have 2 booths at the festival! One of them will have games for children, and the other one will have information about the society, brochures, and a model from the Lloyd House. Most importantly, we are raffling off a Country Ham and Fixin's at the festival! If you are interested in buying a raffle ticket, they are $1 each or 6 for $5. Why don't you come see us?
We will be the "Business of the Week" at First Federal Bank in Mt. Washington the week of September 26th. We will have displays set up and information about the society. Come and check it out!
As for the Lloyd House, the floor of the kitchen is rotten and needs to be replaced. Our next project will be to get the floor torn out and replaced and new vinyl put down on top. We are also in the process of raising money to get the metal roof repainted. It will cost us about $1500 to get the roof repainted.
We are hoping to open the Lloyd House for Candlelight Tours this Christmas season! Our big push is to get the Lloyd House functional enough to be able to open. Stay tuned for more information about the Candlelight Tours!
