I believe the Charity Day is Saturday March 10th, not the 14th.

I also heard the date was March 10th but only for those people that have bought a booklet.

Yes Carol you're correct. The Greendale Historical Society was selling booklets. You might want to check it out to see if any are still available.
Carol February 29, 2012 at 08:41 PM
Thanks. A bunch of us have the booklets and are looking forward to the 10th. Not sure what time it opens that day though.
