Drawing to benefit Bayless House

Wednesday, September 12, 2012
The Barry County Genealogical and Historical Society will hold a drawing for a circa 1905 Winterling Bavaria/Germany Heritage rosebud china set at the Cassville Area Chamber of Commerce's annual Chili and Salsa Cook-Off on Oct. 27. Proceeds from the drawing, which will be held at 2 p.m., will benefit the Bayless House renovation project. Originally owned by Mrs. Lloyd Graves, mother-in-law to Dr. Rudd, the china set includes eight four-piece place settings, a coffee pot and sugar and creamer bowls. The set was purchased at auction by Melvin and Barbara Lacey and donated to the historical society for the drawing. Tickets are $1 each or six for $5. Tickets may be purchased at Tomblin's Jewelry and Gifts in Cassville, where the set will be on display. Those who enter the drawing will also have an opportunity to win several other prizes, including: a girls bicycle; a pair of baskets; a "Simply Nine" quilted throw; and four boating safety courses from the Shell Knob Coast Guard Auxiliary. Winners need not be present to win. For more information, call Bud Hart, president of the Barry County Genealogical and Historical Society, at 271-3521.
