History Day 2010

The Greenfield Historical Society hosted History Day on October 2nd. It was a day of various activities at the buildings at the east end of town. Special exhibits were featured as well as craftspeople demonstrating their skills. There was even an "attic sale" for the community yard sale. And of course there was plenty of food.

Chris Dodds volunteered his time to smoke the pork loin for sandwiches. The result was delicious.

Quilter Jayne Honnold demonstrated her quilting skills to guests. Here Shirley Shields finds out how to do it.

Jill Lee, Bill Lee and Susan Winchell take time for a picture. The Lees hosted at Travellers Rest. Susan gave two recitals of Stephen Foster songs.

Author Christopher Nelson takes time from signing books for a picture with Tom Smith, Greenfield's Patterson expert.
