Despite of a rainy Start on Saturday October 19th, the Fall Fest had a good turnout at The Williams County Historical Society. Pam Schroeder, is the new Executive Director at WCHS and was there to greet those who came out to join in the festivities with a smile. The proceeds from the day’s events are going to be put towards the Caboose Restoration Project.
As you walked in the doors of the Historical Society, you could smell the freshly made baked goods and see signs of the upcoming holidays around every corner. Lots of vendors were set up with crafts, baked good, and other specialty items. As you walked through each room, there were more tables filled with items. The Big Red Barn held more crafts, and complimentary cider and donut holes. The barn also had crafts for the children who attended to complete, and Halloween photo boards for some memory making opportunities. There was a magic show that was held at 2pm and wagon rides were also available.
After speaking with Ms. Schroeder about the event, she said they are planning another Fall Fest for next year. The public is encouraged to volunteer, get updates, and participate in the many happenings at WCHS. To get involved, you can contact the Historical Society at WCHS@WILLIAMS-NET.COM or 419-485-8200.
