On Monday, March 28, Thurmont Grange # 409 hosted its Annual “Antique” Roadshow, with all the evening’s proceeds being donated to Sabillasville Environmental School (SES), a charter school focused on agriculture and the environment.
The Roadshow attendees brought a wide variety of antiques and collectibles to be evaluated by our local experts, David Hunt and Lisa Cantwell, who graciously volunteered their time. Everything from butter churns and postcards to jewelry and artwork, and everything in between, were examined and evaluated.
All guests enjoyed listening to the stories and history behind these items and learning the potential value and professional opinions of both David and Lisa. As our experts explained, sentimental value and actual value are not the same, and condition is everything when it comes to appraisals.
SES PTA President Alisha Yocum was present to receive the $500 donation Thurmont Grange was able to raise, thanks to the generosity of everyone who attended the Roadshow.
