So much is going on at the House. We have committee meetings, visitors, members and contractors all visiting the House for various reasons! We have received donations of items related to Ewing History and are very grateful that these items have a permanent home, and will be viewed and enjoyed for generations to come! Thank you for thinking of the Ewing Historic Society when “cleaning out!” Some donations are not even old pieces – for instance, newly published books on preservation, frames no longer being used by owners, and even a bag of flour! (to be used to have our local dairy farm milk bottles appear full!!) We are always open to new and old ideas!! Right now, we are looking for feathers!! Please stop over to see our newly pieced together rope bed! But we are in need of a feather ticking to make it more authentic! So send our way your no longer used feather comforters and pillows! Got ducks? We’ll take their eiderdown!
In addition to the inside contents of the House and our archives, we are busy with projects for the structure of the House itself! We met with the contractor who will be rehabbing our old windows. The work will begin in early spring, and I will keep you apprised of the progress of this major renovation work!.
With so much being and done, and so much to be done, we are always looking for ways that members can share their time with us. We welcome any time you have to give. Our upcoming programs are also a good way to get yourself involved in the Society. We have our next program on Sunday, Feb 12th at 2:00 pm when our TCNJ interns will present their interactive video presentation on Washington Through Ewing. Come Celebrate Presidents BirthDay with us! Then on March 12th at 2:00 pm, we will have a presentation of 2 short films by local filmmakers. Popcorn and a Movie – a Great Sunday Afternoon!!
