  • Preparations are underway for an eventful evening of activities, food, entertainment, fellowship, recognition of service and more as part of the Wayne County Historical Society's autumn banquet that will be at Lukan's Farm Resort on Long Ridge Road near Hawley on Sat., Nov. 2nd.
    Gathering time will begin at 5:00 p.m. with a cash bar available and the first opportunity of the evening for guests to view and place bids at the silent auction to benefit the Society. Each person attending the dinner will receive a number as they arrive. The number will be used to place bids on any of the silent auction items.
    Chaired by WCHS Trustee Carol Dunn, the silent auction will feature items that include: a piece of Honesdale Decorating Company glassware decorated in Seelyville in the 1920's, a children's book basket, an Italian dinner basket, as well as gift certificates for local eateries and events, merchandise, theme baskets and more.
    At 6:30 p.m. a full course dinner will be served family style in the Lukan's tradition. Entrees include roast beef and breaded pork chops, plus all the starters and fixings'.
    Throughout the evening there will be additional opportunities to "double check" and perhaps increase silent auction bids, with auction winners being announced periodically throughout the night. The evening program will include live entertainment by performing arts students from the Wallenpaupack Area School District, to honor Sally Talaga for her many years of service throughout her tenure as WCHS Executive Director upon her retirement.
    Clinton Leet will be honored as Richard L. Kreitner Lifetime Achievement Award because of his vision and "roll-up-your-sleeves" approach. Leet has served as a catalyst for the undertaking of many projects, including the Stourbridge Line train excursions and the Canal Park at Lock 31 just outside of Hawley.
    Autumn banquet tickets are $50.00 per person with proceeds from the dinner and the silent auction directly benefiting the work of the Society. Seating is limited and advance reservations are required. RSVPs and reservation payment(s) in full should be made not later than 4:00 p.m, Wed, October 30th. Non-refundable checks should be made payable to "WCHS" and mailed or hand delivered at the Main Museum located at 810 Main Street, Honesdale, PA.
