The Western Greenbrier Historical Society will hold its first Appalachian Reunion Festival on Saturday, Aug. 28. The event begins at 12 noon and runs until dusk at the Meadow River Community Park, Route 60, Charmco, WV.
There will be food, music, arts and crafts, storytelling, games, and a few surprises. An antique car cruise-in will be held at the park, as well. The Goodson Boys will be playing from 2 to 4 p.m., and John Wyatt will be playing music and telling his own brand of Appalachian stories. Jim Costa also plans to come and demonstrate how music used to be played.
Debbie and Bill Wilson will serve from their food truck; and Julian Arbaugh and son will demonstrate how they’ve merged the old with the new in grinding meal from a grist mill attached to their John Deere Tractor.
There will be activities for the children, such as painting and card-making, from 1:30 to 2 p.m., and returning at 4 p.m., as well as other games.
This is a fundraising event for the newly-established Western Greenbrier Historical Society. Tables are still available for vendors at $15 each. If interested, please call Irma Cadle at 304-771-8814. General admission is $10 per car for an afternoon of food, fun, and great music. Donations will be gratefully accepted, and items for a silent auction would be greatly appreciated.
