The Friends of History in Fulton will hold its annual “Tailgate” Winter Warming party fund-raiser at the John Wells Pratt House Museum, 177 S. First St., Fulton, Friday, Jan. 25 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Proceeds from this annual fund-raiser are used to support the historic John Wells Pratt House Museum and its activities.
Wine, beer and non-alcoholic punch will be served with a variety of “comfort foods” and desserts to help chase away the winter cold.
“Plan to attend and see your friends and the special sports decorations in the warmth of the Pratt House Local History Museum,” a spokesperson said. “To add to the fun, you are asked to come dressed in the colors or logo of your favorite team. It will be interesting to see how many teams are represented.”
