Our March Show Continues through April

We decorated our new poster (at Left) with an old display ad we found in the November 1912 Sherwood News-Sheet. We only had to change the quaintly out-of-fashion wording a little for our Museum show. The original wording is as follows:

Cut the High Cost of Living

We have cut the cost of high living--as far as good clothes are concerned. You can secure here the very finest of made-to-measure suits or overcoats at 5 to 20 per cent less than you can possibly get through any other channel. Proof? Call and look over the International Fall display of styles and fabrics and compare the prices for yourself. By way of interest see the values we offer at 15, 20 and 25 dollars--elsewhere they'd cost--well judge for yourself.

McConnell & Hall General Merchandise

Historical Society President Polly adds: "On Tuesday, April 14 at 1:45 a.m. we are hosting a program by Susan Hall, collector, historian, seamstress, and milliner, who will share her 40 year love affair with vintage clothing. Her show will highlight accessories such as handbags, gloves, and parasols. The program will be in our upstairs classroom in the Museum. Bring your friends. It's free."

Gas Engine Show is Sat. April 25

You definitely don't want to miss this! The Sherwood Historical Society's own Lilly Morgan and Clyde List will be located front and center at the Gasoline Engine Show this year. On North Sherwood Blvd. across from Alto's Automotive.

Sherwood Historian is Grand Marshal-Elect!

In the photo at left we see Sherwood City Councilor Robyn Folsom paying close special attention to Sherwood Historical Society Secretary and Past President Clyde List as he describes important facets of Sherwood history that are still relevant in our time. Also known as Friar Tuck to the Sherwood Robin Hood Festival Association, Mr. List lectures the Town Council endlessly regarding the historical connection between the Robin Hood Legend, the American Revolution, and lessons learned from Native Americans during the period leading up to the Revolution. The humble Friar will speak for 15 minutes (no longer) on these topics April 9 at the Maid Marian Pageant at the Sherwood Public Library at 6:00 PM.
