On Saturday, 1 October 2016 the Society participated as an exhibitor for the sixth consecutive year in the eight-year history of the Paoli Blues Fest. While the weather was a little cool and misty, a good-sized crowd came out to support the event.

The ten-by-ten foot exhibit tent was located at booth position #71, near the entrance to TJ's. The steady stream of visitors who visited the tent throughout the day were fascinated by the diverse collection of historic photographs on display, and enjoyed having the opportunity to both learn about, as well as share their knowledge of, local history. This year we displayed a new set of six large, poster-size images for the enjoyment of our vistors.

Exhibiting at this community event is a wonderful way to introduce the Society to a new and wider audience, as well as to connect with many friends who stop by to chat. If you are interested in the enjoyable work of helping to staff the booth next year, please contact the Society by email or speak to one of us at a Society meeting.
