CHS HOMECOMING FESTIVAL–EXPLORING WWII
The Caledonia Historical Society presents the annual Homecoming Festival on September 12th and 13th, 2015. This year’s theme will be exploring WWII. Come join us at Linwood Park, 7300 5 Mile Rd, just east of the corner of Hwy 38 and 5 Mile Rd from 10 am to 4 pm each day. Tour the historic buildings, watch the Civil War Reenactments and the Saw Mill demonstrations, enjoy the classic cars and antique tractors, buy a pie at the pie auction, partake of the various foods, and visit the vendors. There will be many other activities, including live music in the afternoons. Join us in honoring the Racine County Veterans on Sunday, September 13th at 12:30 pm with a special ceremony.

Good Afternoon!!!! I am a Marketing Representative for Costco Wholesale. We would like to be a part of the Homecoming Festival, September 12 & 13. If you could forward additional information regarding this event, I would greatly appreciate it. We would like to set up a 10′ x 10′ tent with a table to explain the benefits associated with a Costco membership. If there is a fee for this, please let me know.
