to hand out scholarship
By Bill McCauley
Bridgeville Historical Society members met recently in the upper floor
meeting room of their newly redecorated museum building that had its
grand reopening on Apple-Scrapple weekend.
Kay Sue Hardesty and Charles Hawk will serve along with club president
John Shockley on a scholarship committee which will review criteria
for the awarding of the annual scholarship of $1,000. Members discussed
such criteria as an oral history of a community person or a research
project on a community topic on the part of the application.
Christmas in Bridgeville will be held at the high school on Saturday,
Dec. 4, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Eighty vendors will participate this year,
reported Shockley, the event's chairman. Club members will be selling
chances at $1 for an antique jelly cupboard, purchased by the society
and refinished by Sonny Hardesty.
Club members have already placed new signs depicting a Christmas tree
at four locations in town including two at Jimmy's Grille, one at
O.A. Newton and Sons and one in the park opposite town hall.
