Exhibit to open for Mother’s Day
In celebration of the 100th anniversary of Mother’s Day, Earlville Opera House will open the exhibit Celebrating 100 Years of Mothers.
The exhibit features historical photographs from families who live in Central New York. Each photo is accompanied by stories written by their descendants that tell us what made the women unique.
There will be a public reception with refreshments from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, with the exhibit remaining open through 3 p.m.
Additionally on Saturday, the Alice in Wonderland Mad Hatter’s Tea Party will take place from 1 to 3 p.m., in the Arts Café. The tea party is by reservation only. Tickets are $18 for the general public and $16 for EOH members and $8 for students. Proceeds go to support EOH programs for youth.
Celebrating 100 Years of Mothers will be on display through June 7. The Earlville Opera House is at 18 E. Main St. in Earlville. For more information, visit www.earlvilleoperahouse.com or call (315) 691-3550 between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday or noon to 3 p.m. Saturdays.

Quilts on display at library
In 2013, the Afton Piece Corps Quilters, a local quilting group, challenged members to interpret a book using needle and threat. The result was the creation of several wall hangings and a bed quilt depicting different kids of books including children’s books, reference books, and even a cookbook. The creations will be on display in the Sidney Library’s Smart Community Room this month.
