They would greatly appreciate the support of the community for the chili luncheon.
With the help of these funds, the Society can continue educating visitors about the history of Jefferson County and the surrounding areas. Each month an educational and/or entertaining program is scheduled. In addition, the JCHS exhibits rotate every three years.
