Watson celebrated its 150 years from the founding date on Saturday, August 24. It began with a horseshoe pitching contest that Jason and Davie Sloop won. Then there was a quilt show from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. Folks enjoyed all the creative quilts, but they also enjoyed the photo albums and past history of Watson, plus the photo show that Scott Holmes made. At 4:00 p.m. a bounce house was blown up and lots of kids played in that.
About 100 folks showed up for the Founder’s Day picnic with lots of good food and more games. They played Tug of War, had an egg toss (one gal ’bout ruined her pretty new Watson t-shirt), races, and more. A big thanks to Tammy and Tommy Gibson who were the main players in making this day happen. Thanks to all others who helped.
The Watson Quilters started a new quilt last week. Those attending were Donna Whelan, Frances Nahkunst, Anita Armstrong, Holly Holmes, Teresa and Jim Hickok, Rosita and Earl Stoner, and Kay Gibson.
