All proceeds will go toward the Mayfield Historical Society.
Guests will be served strawberry shortcake, ice cream and beverages. There will be live music by Cosby Gibson and Tom Staudle, from 1 – 3 pm and free tours of the Rice Homestead will be given.
Folk Times said of Gibson and Staudle: ”With guitar, violin, banjo, harmonica, ukelele and dulcimer, these high-spirited independent artists present heartfelt original acoustic folk and blues.”
June 18th will also be the premier of this summer’s exhibition – “Toys of Yesteryear”, which coincides with Coleco’s Cabbage Patch Doll’s 40th anniversary, of which Coleco in Mayfield had a part.
