Fall City Day

We look forward each year to this opportunity to be "out in the community" with our booth and displays. Our three-tent "pavilion" is becoming a landmark of the event, sure to be worth visiting. In addition to offering a unique exhibit each year, we make available books and the items in our "History in Your Hand" series. New for 2015 are three Fall City magnet designs.

2015: Pioneers, baseball, and spinning, Oh My!

Hilde GettingerOur two early Fall City Pioneers, Jack Bush and Nancy Moore were a great addition to the booth, as was Hilde Gettinger, master spinner and willing teacher!

Baseball has a long history in Fall City and 2015 will provide another chapter, as the Northwest Honkers, a semi-pro team, will play their home games in the Community Park across the river. We enjoyed calling them to local attention and handing out pocket schedules for their games.

Honkers BaseballAnd in honor of this resurgence, we offered a display on baseball in the early 1900s in Fall City...and a season that ended with a winning percentage of 800 for the local team!

Hilde GettingerSpinning… Hilde Gettinger brought two spinning wheels and a hand spindle to share this year. She is a rare combination of a skilled craftsperson and a patient and delightful teacher.

We enjoyed the opportunity to visit with friends and new acquaintances…answered questions and made notes of several projects for follow-up
