Food for Thought

In 1915 the Hillsboro Coffee Club published a little cook book as a fundraiser.  The women of the club used the funds to operate a small house on NE 2nd Avenue that they called the Rest Room.  It was a place where women visiting Hillsboro for business or shopping could rest during the day with their children while they waited for their husbands.  The little house is long gone, but the cookbook survives.

At this annual meeting of the Hillsboro Historical Society, we will sample treats cooked from these 1915 recipes, enjoyed with coffee, of course, to recognize the Coffee Club members and their contribution to our community.

We’ll follow the desserts and social time with a one-hour conversation, “What is the purpose of the Hillsboro Historical Society?”  This discussion will be led by facilitator Jonathan Abramson of avenues2possibilites LLC, a consulting group for non-profit organizations.  Everyone is invited to participate as we envision a future for history in Hillsboro.

After the discussion we will hold elections for new Board members.  You must be a member of the Hillsboro Historical Society to serve on the Board or vote.

The meeting is free and open to the public.  For more information contact Kay Demlow, HHS President, at kay.demlow@frontier.com.

October 9 was the first Time Travelers’ Marketplace and Ball.

The Marketplace showcased the products of more than 10 vendors from around the Pacific Northwest.

The Ball took place at the Odd Fellows’ Lodge on Main Street downtown and was enjoyed by more than 100 guests.

We’d really like to recognize our sponsors who spent hundreds of hours making the event a success!
