This past weekend, our family had the privilege of participating in the Fall Festival put on by the St Clair County Historical Society at the John Looney Pioneer Museum. We affectionately refer to it as “The Looney House” around these parts, an apropos place for the Travers family to assemble, don’t you think?
We have been invited as a family, the last five or so years, to play Bluegrass for the festival, and some of our children set up a booth to sell their crafts. It’s a very fun, family-friendly fall-ish day, and we always enjoy the cooler weather, the colorful leaves, and the historical atmosphere; but mostly, we enjoy fellowship with friends, old and new.
It’s amazing how easy it is to share about the Lord with those who stand and sing along with the band, or stop by our booth to look at our wares. Over the years we’ve met some fascinating people, and this year was no exception. We are grateful for opportunities like this festival to serve others in our community.
Special thanks to Hannah H. for allowing me to use her beautiful photos from the day. Below I have included a little slide show to share with you the sights and give you a feel for the atmosphere we enjoyed at the Looney House 2013!
