Galena ‘Other Side of the Anvil’ Event
October 19 @ 10:00 am - October 20 @ 4:00 pm
The Galena Historical Society has asked for our help promoting blacksmithing in Galena. Their goal is to get more people working in the historical Old Blacksmith Shop. We will be setting up the tent outside the Ulysses S. Grant home.
This is our 2nd year at Galena. Last year was a big success. The whole day had people waiting in line to try blacksmithing. This year we’re adding a second day to the event.
We need people to help at this event. We will be making S hooks and bottle openers. Like with other OSA events, we need smiths to help people forge. The tent will be in operation from 10 to 4 each day. You are welcome to help both days, but helping either day would be greatly appreciated.
There are lots of interesting shops, so bring your spouse along. Being October, we probably won’t have hot weather to contend with.
The Historical Society will have food vendors in the park along with other craft people.
Please call Jim Ribordy to volunteer, 608-295-9535.
