The second annual Perry County Fair was held June 16, 17 and 18. The Confederate submarine Hunley replica was there, and we had skirmishes throughout the event, as well as blacksmith demonstrations, saltmaking, and Abe Lincoln.
We recently acquired an old-time spinning wheel. It is of a type patented about 1802, powered by hand, used while standing, for spinning wool. Some ladies at the recent Red River Museum agreed to demonstrate it for us on Education Day and during the reenactment.
The Southeastern Kentucky Blacksmiths Association will meet at the General Store Tuesday, June 21, 6 pm. Bring a covered dish for a potluck dinner.
Our next business meeting will be on July 17, 2016 at 3 pm at the General Store.
