October Newsletter

German Heritage Days was a success. Friday was a bit windy and the
tent nearly blew over but the weather improved and we had a lot of
visitors. A free raffle was held and Barb Bollheimer was the winner of
two free Christmas Dinners at the museum.

The cast iron stove has been moved upstairs to the dining room where
it fits perfectly.

A new member attended the meeting on Thursday. His name is Larry
Warren who is retired from the military and is working at Wright-Patterson
in Dayton. He thinks Ft. Loramie will be a nice change from D.C where
he has been living.

Amy Ahrns donated an old bible.

The Minster Historical Society has published a cookbook that is more
than just food. There is also history and old photos of school classes
and sports teams. Wagner's IGA has them and you can stop at the desk
and look.

Preparations for the Christmas dinners are ongoing. The museum is
being decorated and there are still some reservations open. This is
the 37th anniversary of the Colonial Williamsburg Dinners.
The menu this year consists of vegetable cheese chowder, Kings Arm
Tavern roast turkey with giblet gravy, colonial cornbread and chestnut
stuffing, sausage and corn stuffed ohions, broccoli with pecans, holiday
sweet potato bake, cranberry-orange-lemon relish and corn relish.
The usual beverages of hot mulled cider, eggnog, banana crush and
wine will be served.
