JHM to host Christmas-themed Our Town Stories

| December 3, 2014

COSHOCTON – In the old days before processed foods were as common as mosquitos in summer, a sweet treat meant there was a celebration going on. And often you could guess which special day you were celebrating merely by dessert being served. Chocolate cake for birthdays, homemade ice cream for the fourth, and pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving. As the Christmas holidays approach, the Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum invites young and old to share their memories about those special treats that were the hallmark of the holidays. “Christmas Cookies, Cakes & Candy” is the topic for the upcoming Our Town Stories discussion on Thursday, Dec. 11, starting at noon. What special holiday pastries and candies did your parents and grandparents make? Have you followed their traditions? Are there some sweets you’ve never been able to replicate?

JHM’s Our Town Stories gathering occurs monthly on the second Thursday of the month at noon. The discussion animates “the old days” as we conjure up memories, share personal stories, and recall Coshocton County as it once was. All are welcome to participate, whether you grew up in Coshocton or not. The atmosphere is casual and the discussion is always informative, fun and surprising. Admission for the program is free, and beverages and cookies will be provided. Bring your sandwich and make the most of your lunch break.

January’s topic is “One-room School Houses.” For more information, contact the Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum at 622-8710 or [email protected]. The Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum is located at 300 N. Whitewoman Street, Coshocton. The museum is open to the public Tuesday through Sunday, 1 – 4:30 p.m.
