Tionesta Lights Up
The Forest County Historical Society has been active in our community celebrating the holidays in style.
We decorated a Christmas tree in the Market Village to help our town have a festive look as we drive through. We decorated our tree in preparation for the upcoming year when we plan to celebrate the passing of the 19th amendment giving women the right to vote. The tree has lights and kitchen utensils with a special topper of a coffee Percolator.
Then on Saturday December 7 we participated in “Tionesta Lights up”. We served a Chili or hot dog dinner to over 75 people. This was down from last year but everyone through the doors seem to enjoy some time together with community members, some dinner, and tours of the decorated Robinson House Museum. We even pulled out the Model T and the carriage that was manufactured here in Tionesta.
We were grateful for all the donations as we try to get a new roof on our building to protect our valuable Forest County Artifacts. Most of our finances have been acquired through individual memberships and donations. We do try for grants when we can. Our all volunteer Board tries to do all we can to be an asset to the community on a shoestring budget.
We would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
