Soddy, Daisy & Montlake Historical Association will have a booth at the Stuart Heights Christmas Market on Sunday from 1:30-6 p.m. This event is to be held indoors at the Stuart Heights Baptist Church in their large lobby/atrium area at 10049 Dayton Pike. It will offer handmade local goods including wood carving, ornaments, bird houses, T-shirts, jewelry and more. Any purchase is a donation and will go directly to the SDMHA “Investing in Our Future to Save Our Past” capital campaign fund.
Come by the museum to drop off canned goods and toys for the Soddy-Daisy Food Bank and Fireman's fund during Fill the Trunk. There is a 1946 Ford just waiting to be filled. Drop-offs may be made anytime during regular hours as this will be self-serve. Stop by to have a picture taken with this beautiful old car and come into the museum to see the Company Store and try a Moon Pie. When enough cans are donated, SDMHA will build a “Community Can Do” sculpture to celebrate the holidays and this community’s generous spirit.
Follow SDMHA on Facebook or join the newsletter for information about how to get involved in efforts to save the Good Old Days museum. "Investing in Our Future to Save Our Past" is the Capital Campaign fundraiser that helps us create a permanent location for the museum with the old Soddy Bank building as the preferred home. Officials are asking for financial support during this campaign. Every investment, whether large or small will help keep this community’s history alive and thriving for future generations.
