Hello and Merry Christmas, as president of the Leon Historical Society, on behalf of all our members, I would like to welcome everyone to our annual Christmas Service. We are very pleased to welcome back this year the Forestville Wesleyan Church Choir following up their wonderful performance from last year. As we all know, Christmas is a time of giving and charity to everyone. That is why I would like to give a big thank you to our dedicated membership who, all year long, shows the Christmas spirit by continuing to give their time, money and food to keep the LHS going strong year after year.
They provide a valuable service to this community through keeping our museum open every Saturday, May through October, introducing visitors and the local residents to the importance of history in the life of a community. Our members provide information not just about the various displays in our museum but also answer questions from the many visitors about our Amish neighbors and provide them with needed directions to the different shops. Our members also give Amish tours to people who come here from all across this country and some from overseas. Our monthly meetings, which are open to everyone, always start out with a pot luck dinner where there is an abundance of great food. Our society needs to keep growing and we always welcome new people who would like to join us in the fun of participating in our activities or who just want t.4 support our good works by becoming a member. So thank you all for celebrating with us at this special time of year.. May your Christmas be a time of Joy and Charity and may God make you rich in both.
The Fellowship Church would like to invite the community and friends to the Church Service every Sunday at 6 PM led by Pastor Thomas O. Maynard. Fellowship follows all services. We are having Evening Service for the Summer!!! June ~ August!!!! Everyone Welcome!
Starting May 5th the Muesum will be open every Saturday from 10am to 4pm and ending in October
