The West Gadsden Historical Society will hold its annual Chicken Pilau supper on Saturday, January 26, 2019 at the Greensboro Depot Railroad Museum, 115 Duffle Ave., Greensboro, from 4:30 p.m. until 6:00 p.m., or until sold out.  All plates are $8.00.  Tickets are not being sold prior to the event.

This year we will have a preview sale of our large estate sale that will be held in March.  We’ve selected several one of a kind antiques and vintage items to feature and sale during the Pilau. Items will be on view within the Patricia Fletcher Vice meeting facility. Don’t miss out on these unique antique items from several families that have donated items for sale by WGHS. All proceeds will help fund the needed repairs at the Depot.

WGHS invites you to come and enjoy time visiting with your family, friends, and neighbors.  We appreciate the tremendous support received each year from our members and guests, and look forward to seeing you this year.  For further information, please call 850-442-6667, or e-mail gadsdenhistory.org@gmail.com.
