The Greenfield Historical Society will hold its last Sunday Dinner of the year Sunday, March 6 at the Grain & Hay building. Tthe menu will be smoked ham, cheesy potatoes, choice of vegetable, pineapple upside down cake, bread and drinks.
Waiters and waitresses will serve guests from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on real plates, silverware and linen. The cost is $10 per person with no tipping requested.
Proceeds from the Sunday dinners go toward, in addition to helping pay utility bills, maintenance of the society’s buildings and various preservation activities of the society, helping fund education programs for Greenfield’s school children.
In the spring the fourth graders are given a program on the inventors and manufacturers of Greenfield, while the third graders attend a program about what schools were like many years ago. The fourth and third graders also visit the Konneker Education Museum.
In May of 2014, a program for second graders was initiated. They learned about transportation in Greenfield over the years. This year a program on pioneer life for first graders is in the planning stages.
“Come on down after church and have a great meal, visit with friends, and support the Greenfield Historical Society,” the society said in a press release.
