SHOW GIVES GLIMPSE AT HOBBIES OF AREA RESIDENTS
Friday's 7th Annual Hobby and Collector Exhibition at the Greenville First Presbyterian Church gave those who attended a chance to see what their friends and neighbors do in their spare time. A large crowd attended the event, which featured over 30 hobbyists. If you were interested in local history, Bill Davidson, John and Holland Anthony, and Gerry and John Morgan all brought vintage postcards, photos, and other memorabilia from Bond County's past. Baby boomers likely were drawn to Dick Franks' Cisco Kid collection. Reverend Ken Bryant brought his Thai handcrafts which he collected during his 14 years in that country. Toy enthusiasts enjoyed Kevin Kaegy's vintage wind-up toys, Richard Lehn's John Deere toys, and Larry Watts' firefighting collectibles. Friday's show is a service of the First Presbyterian Church's outreach committee.
