South Bristol Historical Society Event - Hops Harvest Dinner

The Third Annual Hops Harvest Dinner and "frivolities" are scheduled for September 20th, 2008. Join the South Bristol Historical Society as we recapture the celebration of the finish of the hops harvest as was done in the distant past. The event will be held at the SBHS headquarters - the former Grange Building in the hamlet of Bristol Springs on Route 64.

This year we are pleased to have Lisa Bigwood and the Washday Band providing our music. The band features Tom (TBone) Farley, Elaine Verstraete and John Denniston. They promise to help us have a good time. The music will follow the buffet dinner that will be served from six to eight p.m. For dinner we will be serving baked glazed ham, sausage, sauerkraut, scalloped potatoes, corn pudding, mixed oven baked vegetables, assorted salads, breads, fruit pies and apple crisp for dessert. Beer (in honor of the hops), wine, cider, coffee and tea will also be included.

Tickets are $15 per person and advanced sale is requested. Historical costume is optional.

A silent auction will be held along with our mini raffles and this year we will institute a 50-50 raffle. Please call Karen Richardson, President at (585) 374-8068 for more information and/or to make reservations.
