We would like to thank each of you for sharing your aprons at the October Coffee. It was so much fun seeing all the different styles and hearing the stories.

At the November coffee we are looking at different hairstyles over the years. Those high school pictures would be great to see.

How many of you remember using back combs to get your hair really tall?  Let’s see how many members can find a back comb buried in the back of your hair care drawers.

At the December Coffee, we will be sharing old cookbooks, so start looking for your favorite book you would like to share.

January 2024 Coffee will highlight First Homes.  Bring a Picture of the house, part of the country and what it cost!  Sears sold building products before 1900, and sold kit homes from 1908 to 1940. From 1940 to 1950 or 1951 Sears sold Homart pre-fabricated home kits in a more limited distribution. Sears Honor-Bilt Homes: were distributed by Sears Catalog and represented a higher quality construction.

We are moving right along in our year. March Coffee we will do Shoes. We all have the pair of shoes that we keep just because.  Bring that pair of shoes and tell us why!
