In an effort to maintain its facilities and continue to offer programs to the community, the Greenfield Historical Society will hold its last Sunday Dinner of the year Sunday, March 5.
The meal will be held at the Grain & Hay building in Greenfield and the menu will include smoked ham, cheesy potatoes, choice of vegetable, salad, pineapple upside down cake, bread and drinks.
Waiters and waitresses will serve guests from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. with real plates and silverware. The cost is $10 per person, and no tipping is requested.
In addition to helping pay utility bills, assist with maintenance costs of the society’s buildings and various preservation activities of the society, proceeds from the dinner also help fund several educational programs the society provides for Greenfield’s school children.
In the spring the school district’s fourth graders are presented with a program by the historical society on the inventors and manufacturers of Greenfield, while the third graders attend a program detailing what schools in the town were like many years ago. The fourth and third graders also visit the society’s Konneker Education Museum.
The fifth grade students are treated every October to a program about John Parker and the Underground Railroad in the Greenfield area. This program is provided with the assistance of the Buckskin and Rainsboro PTOs.
During a visit by second graders to the society’s facilities in May, the students learn about transportation in Greenfield over the years. Members of the Greenfield Police Department, Paint Creek Joint EMS/Fire District and Dragin Angels Car Club share their vehicles while society volunteers share stories about the society’s Conestoga wagon, buggies and train exhibit.
“Come on down after church and have a great meal, visit with friends, and support the Greenfield Historical Society,” society member Harold Schmidt said.
