Historical society’s picnic relishes food and fellowship
MADISON – The Madison Station Historic Preservation Society hosted its annual summer picnic late afternoon on June 8.
Historical society members gathered in the attractive front lawn of Dennis Vaughn’s home on Front Street. Vaughn is a founding member of the historical society.
Society President Debbie Overcash welcomed the crowd to the picnic. Vaughn gave the blessing for the food that was placed on a long stretch of tables.
Society members, family and friends enjoyed barbecue and all the fixings that the society provided. Members brought their famous side dishes and desserts that no one could resist, Overcash said.
“This annual event for the historical society is highly anticipated and always enjoyed,” Overcash said.
After the picnic, most of the group strolled over to Home Place Park on Shorter Street to enjoy the first concert in the “Sounds of Summer” series. Madison Art Alliance sponsors these outdoor concerts.
The society’s mission is to preserve history, restore artifacts and bring the community together for the common good. For more information or to join the MSHPS, email Debbie.firstname.lastname@example.org or visit historicmadisonstation.com.
