Our 2017 2nd annual Gordon Hall Days will be held on Saturday June 17th and Sunday June 18th. We will be open from 10 to 5 both days with the Country Dance on Saturday from 6:30 to 9 pm. A committee has been meeting since mid-January on Tuesday nights to come up with ideas and ways to implement them. We welcome anyone who would like to join us as we go from the idea stage into the planning stage.
This year's theme will be a Country Fair and we are planning an event reminiscent of the past. We are looking into a "Midway" with booths full of games for all ages, a threshing demonstration, the Lions Food Wagon, popcorn booth, Cotton Candy, train rides, a petting zoo, and other activities. Special events include Gordon Hall tours, a Tea and Fashion show, a Country Dance and our famous Pie Auction. Further details will be coming as we work out the details.
As we have done in the past, we will be seeking Sponsors for some of the events to help us defray costs. We are looking for local merchants or groups interested in supporting our efforts. Perhaps you work at a company that would be willing to help us so that our “profits” can all go to the restoration of Gordon Hall.
We need your help to make this experience work. Volunteers are needed for 2 to 4 hour shifts in all areas from manning the booths to working with the grounds committee to helping with the special events and everything in between. Volunteering is one way you can help us in our quest to restore Gordon Hall. To let us know when and how you can help us, just reply to DexMuseum@aol.com or leave a message at 734-426-2519. Thank you.
