Appalachian Craft Fair
7/29
(2 days)
Appalachian Craft Fair
Residents living in the coalfields of southeastern Kentucky have few opportunities for employment but a local church is doing its part to help artisans in the Cumberland Mountains earn a living. In an effort to alleviate a real unemployment rate approaching 50% in the Red Bird Valley, Red Bird Mission Crafts markets a wide selection of high quality crafts for as many as 100 different crafters living within an 80-mile radius of the mission.

Trinity Church, Windsor, CT and Red Bird Mission Crafts are hosting an Appalachian Craft Fair at Trinity Church, 180 Park Ave., Windsor, CT on Saturday July 29, 2017 from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM. Craft items will also be available for purchase following the Sunday July 30, 9:30 AM Worship Service.
Shoppers will find beautiful handmade traditional crafts developed in an age when total self-sufficiency was necessary for those living in the isolated mountains. Many handmade items include jewelry, hand-painted gourds, woven place mats, and brooms for use or decoration. Doll collectors will have opportunity to purchase a variety of handmade dolls, and several varieties of corn shuck flowers will delight flower lovers. Wooden crafts consist of toys, games, kitchen utensils, cooling racks, stools, and benches. Adorable wood and cloth Christmas ornaments, an assortment of nativity sets, and the one-of-a-kind Santa dolls add to the colorful display.

Red Bird Mission has enabled local residents in the Cumberland Mountains to become more self-reliant since its beginning in 1921 as a mission school in the isolated community of Beverly. The mission continues to provide a high quality education to children and youth through its school, and assists families through a dental clinic, health education, community outreach, community housing improvement and a thrift store.

For more information, contact Trinity Church at 860 688-9245 ext. 100 or email at office@tumcwindsor.org.

Genealogy Support Group!
Genealogy Support Group!
Here’s something new and needed at Windsor Historical Society! Join us on Thursday, August 3, 2017 from 5:30 PM to 7 PM in the Society’s library. Just starting out? Experienced but stumped? Want access to Ancestry.com? Family history researchers find that historical artifacts and documents become pieces of a complex and fascinating puzzle that shows you where you came from and who you are. Inevitably, experienced as well as inexperienced genealogists hit snags. Society staff members have been helping family history researchers with queries like yours for many years, and most genealogy researchers are helpful individuals who love to share strategies and success stories. You just might find a solution to your brick wall through a fellow family history searcher in these FREE discussion and problem-solving sessions at the Society.

At our first two sessions, researchers of all levels learned more about Windsor Historical Society resources, shared stories, and helped one another. It was wonderful to see people making connections, learning, and having fun! Contact windsorhistoricalsociety.org or 860-688-3813 for information. And put upcoming First Thursday Genealogy Support sessions on your calendar.
