Toys are are not only fun to play with but also offer windows into their time period.
The Fayette Area Historical Initiative (FAHI) has gathered some of those relics from community members for its “Toys, Dolls and All Things Christmas” exhibit. It was installed on Nov. 24 and will remain on display through the end of January, Interim Director Gerald Holman said.
Fruitcake often is the brunt of jokes, but it’s a whole lot easier to take when it’s doused in brandy.
My British husband waxed poetic over his late mother’s Christmas cake. It seemed like a nice tradition to bring into my own holiday baking. When I got the recipe from one of her friends, Val Churchman of England, I was surprised to see it was fruitcake.
Holiday season is here, and the Bulletin’s Accent Department has baked a guide to sweet holiday events in Martinsville and Henry County. Grab a mug of hot chocolate and your calendar, sit back and plan your family’s Christmas and New Year’s celebrations. Happy holidays!
Forms are available from the Accent Department to announce engagements, weddings, births, anniversaries and birthday milestones in the Martinsville Bulletin. Normally, completed forms and photographs that are returned by noon Wednesday may qualify for publication the following Sunday. These announcements are published free of charge.
