"80 Years of May Market in Historic New Castle"
Arasapha's annual May Market is one of Historic New Castle's beloved traditions. It's not just a club event but an enduring community partnership. At this webinar, you'll learn about the very first May Markets, held during World War II, and how May Markets have evolved over the years. We'll hear some stories about May Markets over the decades, including the May Market that was disrupted by a fire and what happened to a raffle prize that the winner didn't want!
Thanks to the New Castle Historical Society for making this recording available.
