The Puddlegulch Ladies’ Historical Society and Quilting Bee held its semi-monthly meeting in the back room of the Bluebird Diner on Monday afternoon. A report concerning the successful conclusion to this weekend’s Possum Day Festival activities was presented by Society President and Possum Cook-off champion 3 years running Fiona Forenstein.
Forenstein reported that this year’s reenactment of the founding of the town by the Society’s members was possibly the most moving yet, despite Emma French’s absence due to her injury when she tripped over the Puddlegulch High School mascot Perry Possum during this year’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
Forenstein also updated the members on their annual toy drive for the holidays. Donations appear to be right on schedule.
After the report, the rehearsal times were announced for next month’s presentation of the Society’s reenactment of the Battle of the Bulge. Since the Toastmasters Club normally meets at the Bluebird Diner, it was agreed that the next meeting of the Ladies’ Historical Society will return to Rosemary Jenkins’ parlor.
The meeting was concluded with a round of the Diner’s famed ice tea and an extended round of quilting.
