Greenfield Historical Society will be holding their last Sunday dinner of the year Sunday, March 5. The meal will be held at the Grain & Hay building and the menu will be smoked ham, cheesy potatoes, choice of vegetable, salad, pineapple upside down cake, bread and drinks.

Waiters and waitresses will be serving guests from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. with real plates and silverware. All this for just $10, no tipping.

In addition to helping pay utility bills, maintenance of the society’s buildings and various preservation activities of the society, proceeds also help fund education programs for Greenfield’s school children.

In the spring the fourth graders are given a program on the inventors and manufacturers of Greenfield, while the third graders attend a program about what schools were like many years ago. The fourth and third graders also visit the Konneker Education Museum.

The fifth graders are treated every October to a program about John Parker and the Underground Railroad. This program is provided with the assistance of the Buckskin and Rainsboro PTOs.

During the second graders’ visit in in May, they learn about transportation in Greenfield over the years. Members of the Greenfield Police Department, Paint Creek Joint EMS & Fire Department, and Dragin’ Angels Car Club share their vehicles while society volunteers share stories about the society’s Conestoga Wagon, buggies and train exhibit.

Come on down after church and have a great meal, visit with friends and support the Greenfield Historical Society.
