Below we see Kevin Hatton (left) and Richard Big Kettle (center) with Society president John Dudek (right) during the Nov. 14 member meeting on Seneca History in Elma.
We had a good meeting turnout, including members of the Marilla Historical Society (thanks for coming!). The James Hurd family drove here from Syracuse to attend (it was so good to see ya, don't be strangers!).
We can expect to see more of members of the Seneca Nation, like Richard Big Kettle, in the future (thanks, again, for being here and sharing!).
Below are photos from Santa's visit to Elma on Dec. 3. We also had Elvis visit, although this Elvis walks on four legs, and can pull a sleigh. "Elvis has left the barn." More photos are on the Facebok page. Click to enlarge.
Below is a photo taken at the Erie County Fair of the Elma Historical Society display. The topic was "Transportation" and various forms of historical children's transportation were displayed.
Below is a newly-acquired antique barrister-style bookcase has been set up on the second floor of Hurd House to honor Elma's premier physicians, the Shaver family. Thanks go to our dedicated Thursday Crew for sweating the details on this new display. Please excuse the photo which is off-center to eliminate reflections in the glass doors. Stop by to see this display, and the rest of the Museum Complex, during regular hours.
Below we see photos from the Dec. 12 Elma Historical Society Holiday Party.
Our October 2022 Chicken & Pork Dinner and Basket Raffle was a great success. The food was delicious, as always. A special thanks to our tireless workers. They did a super job. Thank you to everyone who attended. Thanks also to all who donated baskets as we had over 100 (see photos).
