New Bean Book
There’s a new Bean book. Rand Packer, grandson of Palmyra Bean, has a new book of photos taken during Willard and Rebecca Bean’s time. The pictures show Palmyra around the turn of the 19th Century. I love it.
They are selling it at the Historic Palmyra Gift Shop (Williams Street in the Coverlet Museum). As soon as I saw it I thought, “I have to have it!”
Tonight Historic Palmyra hosted their annual ice cream social. It was a nice evening. We met some new temple missionaries.
A lot of people don’t attend these events. Had I known I would have announced it in Priesthood Meeting Sunday. I guess I need to pay better attention to the community calendar.
The Coverlet Museum also has a very cool Palmyra Coverlet for about $45. If we had a place to display it, I’d buy one. I’d hate to put it on a bed because I wouldn’t want it to get ruined. It would look cool displayed on a large wall.
It shows the four churches, the canal, and other Palmyra landmarks. I bet they sell a lot of these to site and temple missionaries. It’s a good reminder of Palmyra, New York.
