During this holiday season, the Board of Directors of the Clinton Historical Society wish to recognize the efforts of the late Dr. David O'Toole. David was a member of the Board of Directors and served as President of the Society for two years. Like his father before him, "Doc" was a local history scholar and we thank him for his many contributions.
Our final program of the year was a great success.
"A Brockelman's Christmas", included a look back at the glory days of Brockelman's Market by Michael Brockelman, the unveiling of the newly restored Brockelman's Sleigh, and a trivia contest. Over 70 people attended and the CHS Chorus, under the direction of Mrs. Kate Meifert, performed many holiday selections. Thanks to the generosity of those in attendance, our toy drive resulted in four boxes and two large bags of toys, dolls, Legos, stuffed animals, and other new items--those were delivered to the Clinton Elementary School on Monday morning as part of the Children's Christmas Fund. Refreshments were provided by the Clinton Savings Bank. Thanks to all who contributed, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from the Clinton Historical Society.
The restored sleigh will be on display every Saturday morning (9-12) through the month of January.
