History comes alive at Alpine History Days

For The Alpine Sun
Alpine gathered at the Alpine Museum, on Saturday June 7th, to celebrate their annual celebration of Alpine’s history.
This year the Alpine Historical Society invited the “Hole in the Wall Gang” entertained all with their skits of days gone by. The members of this group have been in movies, on television and on commercials.
On exhibit was the Justin Gruelle display, There was a presentation on beekeeping by Richard Edwords, along with a presentation on raising baby chicks.
The buggy restoration is still in progress, and the barn’s display of Alpine history transports visitors back to the beginning times of our little community.
The Model T Ford Club also displayed their beautiful vehicles. The Alpine Kiwanis provided lunch, and the Historical Society served ice cream sundaes, a welcome treat in the Alpine heat.
The kids also enjoyed face painting, and Joan Waterworth entertained everyone with her skills as an organist.
Every month we feature The Alpine Sun celebrates Alpine’s history in our “Tattered Tidbits” column sharing the colloquial eccentricities of our Alpine Ancestors.
