On Sunday May 25th from 11 to 4 the No.9 will be having it's annual memorial day picnic. There will be mine/museum tours, a DJ, and my personal favorite FOOD! Pierogies, Halushki, Halupki (piggies), Bean Soup, Barbecue (sloppy joes) and Hot Dogs. Plus there will be a Bake Sale also.

On July 13th from 10 to 5 we will be having our first annual Coal Miners Heritage Festival. There will be live music, Food, displays by local history groups, a arts and crafts sale, and live timber setting, and spiking demonstrations. There will also be a coal shoveling competition. This is still being planed and I might add one or two more demonstrations yet. AMR will also be there, they will have a booth and will more than likely be assisting in demonstrations.

With all the fun stuff going on this summer, I may just have to take a leave of absence and move up there.

(Only teasing.)

I'll mark these on my calendar.
