A spring tea was held at the Fulton House recently to raise funds for the preservation of museum artifacts. The annual Spring Tea was held at the Fulton House on April 23, the Saturday before Easter. In addition to the usual good food and many desserts, a contest for the prettiest and the most outlandish hats was held. Judges of the hats were the men present, Dick Johnson, Glenn Cordell and Shane Stiffler.

Prettiest hat belonged to Nora Williams of Breezewood, with Ruth Williams and Frances Johnson tied for second place. The most outlandish hat entered was constructed by Barbara Conrad of Harrisburg and displayed a wreath of colored eggs around the crown and a crocheted chicken on top. Second place was Ruth Reeder of town.

The tea and the contest were deemed a lot of fun and the money raised will be used for the preservation of Historical Society museum artifacts. At present a safe room is being finished in the attic to more properly care for items. Soon many inventoried items will be moved there. Volunteers are needed to help with the different activities planned. Please call 814-735-3039 to volunteer.
