History re-vamped, says Newton Citizen.
Please come to this year's reunion to meet up with former classmates. We'll gather at 11 am in the Schoolhouse Museum. Helen Amendola (Von Waldner) attended the Newborn School many years ago and still values the education she received here. She stopped by recently to see the restoration work going on. We found a book of hers - still had her nameplate in it - on one of the desks. How fun is this!
On July 23, 2016, we hosted our annual meeting with member's dinner. This event was full of fun, fellowship, and discussions about renovations. We have some exciting things planned for the Historic Schoolhouse. If you would like to get involved in these changes, please join us for our monthly NAHT meeting!
Presenting acoustical music on the third Saturday each month.
Might be bluegrass, might be Irish, might be country - come check it out!
Miss Brenda's cooking!
Open mike session before major acts begin at 7 and 8 pm.
No cover charge, donations of at least $5 encouraged.
Two dear old friends were among those who attended the Schoolhouse reunion in October. Mattie Chapman (left) and friend Frances Morrow Tucker enjoyed the annual luncheon and filled in details about the school to help the NAHT's work in restoring one of the classrooms into a museum.
**** Note, Miss Frances passed away in January of 2016, we will miss her so much!
Beginning Jan 1st, we've hosted Bingo on the first Friday of every month of 2016. It has been a lot of fun getting to know our community. We have all kinds, young and old, tall and short, join us on these fantastic Fridays. There is something heartwarming about sharing a meal with your neighbor. We're taking a break during the month of April while we prepare for the Hornyhead Fish Festival but we encourage you to join us this summer for more Bingo fun!
We've sent out invitations but all are welcome - just be sure to RSVP if you can make it on October 17 from 11 - 2 at the old school. We'll have BBQ from Cowboys' ($10 per person) but the main attraction this year is the new sign and the dedication of the memorial/honorarium bricks. Each person is invited to share a little about the person/s on each brick. Did you forget to order one? We can still add a few, drop us a line.
Fish don't care if it's wet, just sayin.
Great music; a record number of "horns" on a fish; plants, boiled peanuts, alpaca puppets, rabbit hutches, jewelry, BBQ, and makeup sold; and a beautiful smart queen crowned!
We had a great time, with good BBQ from the Newborn UMC, and great conversation. The highlight of the day was "The Helen Show"! Helen Porter Conger and Helen Amendola VonWaldner spoke about what school was like back in the day, and life in the little Wild West early days of their lives in Newborn.
