The Shelby County Historical Society will host its annual Spring Dinner at Grover Museum on Thursday, April 27, beginning at 6 p.m.
Kevin Stonerock, a living historian and this year’s guest speaker, will take on the role of a Yankee soldier and share life stories and experiences from the view of a Civil War soldier.
This will not be Stonerock’s first experience with the historical society. In fact, Stonerock starred as a pioneer settler and hunter during the 2016 Pioneer Fair, where he led a group discussion about living on the frontier, talked with community members who were entering the fair and participated in the fashion show, where he wore various skins, furs, guns and knives.
The Spring Dinner will be held in the downstairs of the museum, and visitors will have the opportunity to see Shelby County historical artifacts from the last 200 years, including two pieces of first settler James Wilson’s cabin, Shelby County school uniforms and memorabilia, banking items and many other artifacts.
In addition to Shelby County historical artifacts, the museum will display Civil War artifacts and memorabilia to act as a backdrop for Stonerock’s speech.
Dinner will include brats, hot dogs, sauerkraut, mashed potatoes, vegetables, salad and dessert.
Tickets can be purchased at the museum office, or reservations can be made by telephone, at 317-392-4634. Members can pick up tickets for $12, and non-members for $15. Reservations must be made by April 20th
