Suffield 3rd Graders at STHS museum 10 17 2019 4

On Thursday October 17th, three classes of third graders from Suffield Elementary visited the Suffield Township Historical Society Museum.  Society Treasurer Elizabeth Vence, former president Judy Calcei, former treasurer Nancy Wise and current Vice President Bev Persons provided a narrative to the displays as the school children toured the building.  Of great interest to this younger generation of our community were things that older folks easily remember and take for granted.  An old cash register, a manual typewriter, both from the early 1900's, fascinated the children.  The display on the Goodyear blimps was a big draw, as was an ironing board with old irons from the 1800's.
