  The Annual Elections Meeting will be held at 6:00 PM at the VFW. The menu will consist of Beef on Weck and side dishes. Dessert, beverages and tip will be included in the price of $17.00. This is a generous offer considering the prices charged at restaurants. To make reservations for the dinner, please call 716-699-2781 by April 16th.

  Franklinville will once again host The Maple Festival. The main event for IVHS at the Maple Festival will be a quilt raffle. Suzanne Linderman has donated a beautiful queen-sized quilt that she designed and made. The winner will be chosen at 3:00 PM on Sunday, April 28th, 2024. Tickets cost one for $5.00 and 3 for $10.00. The winner need not be present to win. Click here to see items available.

Tickets are now on sale and if you are not in the Franklinville area, but would like to buy tickets for the quilt, please send a check to IVHS Treasurer, P.O. Box 153 Franklinville, New York 14737. Please mark that the amount is for the quilt tickets. We will fill out the raffle tickets for you and if you wish, will send confirmation of the numbers by email. Winner will be notified by phone and posted on our website: www.ishuavalleyhistoricalsociety.org.

In addition to the large quilt, we will have a Chinese Auction for a lap quilt and several Maffei prints. We have small woven rugs for sale that are about 100 years old and in great condition. There will be a demonstration of weaving on the old loom the rugs were made on.

A basket and gift certificate raffle will also be available this year. Please consider donating a basket or making a donation toward having a basket made for you. Donations can be sent to: IVHS Treasurer, P.O. Box 153, Franklinville, New York 14737. Your donations are tax deductible! We are asking that baskets and certificates be brought to 3 Park Square on Friday afternoon April 26th until 5:00 PM.

Come on out and support The Maple Festival and the Ischua Valley Historical Society.
You Well!


While there is no mask mandate, if any of you wish to continue masking we will understand. Thankfully, we have become more knowledgeable in how to stay healthy and still enjoy social events. Please keep this in mind as we move forward together.
          See You Soon.

Watch for more details, and final dates and times as the year progresses.
