WINCHESTER HAPPENINGS

It feels like I have a void with not having Caramel Festival events to report. However, Patsy and I have had several people who have voiced interest in being able to participate in the walking historical home tour and walk through the cemetery. We will offer the walk, weather permitting, beginning at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 27. We will meet at the gazebo in the middle of Winchester.

We have been selling the Bicentennial books and have a few more available for purchase.

On Thursday, Sept. 17, W3CU Compassion Ministry will have the food pantry and clothing distribution in the building next to the main church from 2:30 – 6:30 p.m. At 1:30 p.m. we will have a nutrition class in the main church.

Please keep the parents of Pastor Dan Harrison in your prayers. They are both dealing with health issues and Dan and Cheryl are spending time with them.

Also, keep Steve Darby in your prayers. He is having health issues.

Linda Kingery shared that the first reunion of the late Albert and Elma Shively family was held at the home of their only grandson, Neal Kingery and his wife Linda on Saturday, Aug. 22 in Winchester. Six of the nine grandchildren and some of their families attended. Vickey Shively-Richards of Newark was the oldest grandchild and her husband the oldest person there.

Winchester’s Past (Florence Bryson): There were many beautiful quilts on display at the quilt show at the Methodist Church during the Bicentennial. One was made by the Ladies Aid of the church in 1934. The ladies sold spaces on the quilt for people’s names as a fund raising project. I don’t know how much a space cost but I’m sure it wasn’t much as it has 438 names on it. It was given to the Pastor, Rev. Ertle who was leaving and years later the family gave it back to the church. Several years ago Steve Kelly had an article about the same type of quilt, called a tithing quilt, that Bruce Closson, an antique dealer in Cincinnati had purchased. It was made in1888 by the Ladies Aid when Rev. Maddox was the pastor. What really is interesting, on the internet, Wes Cowan Auctions sold a quilt in 2009 that was made in Winchester in 1847 by Elizabeth Downey. The quilt was a wedding gift for her son, Attorney Thomas Downey. It was called a Whig Rose pattern and was in perfect condition. A family member sold it for $1,782. Thomas had a daughter Irma who married John Fenton and their daughter Wilma married Lloyd Salisbury and they had children who would have inherited it.
