Letter: Help add some history to Christmas in Kaneville

By on November 23, 2011

Aprons, in the past, have been a very important part of work in a kitchen. The Kaneville Township Historical Soceity will spotlight the history of this important part of life in the past at its Farley Open House during the Christmas in Kaneville event on Saturday, Dec. 3.

A display of old and newer aprons and kitchen utensils will emphasize the importance of special food during the winter holidays. Whether from recycled feed sacks or treasured handwork, aprons will bring back memories to everyone.

If you have a Kaneville apron or utensil that you would like to loan for the day, please call (630) 557-2202. Men’s work aprons are welcome also. The display will be open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Lovell Street at the 1840 Farley House by the firebarn in Kaneville.
