Jail Benefit Auction Held At Hustontown Firehall
Supporters of the Fulton County Historical Society’s efforts to help with the preservation of the Fulton County jail building donated items for a benefit auction last Saturday evening at the Hustontown Firehall. Total receipts from the silent and traditional auction amounted to $10,145.
Additional cash contributions to the same fund total $16,175 to date, so about 40 percent of the cost has been raised for the Tru-Brix exterior siding. The bricks are being fired this week at Cushwa in Williamsport.
A cookbook of Fulton County recipes is scheduled for late September, with all proceeds going toward the jail preservation. Community support throughout Fulton County for this project has been strong, but more funds are needed to complete the project and may be mailed to the Historical Society at Box 115, McConnellsburg, PA 17233.
