New Bean Book

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!”

Ice Cream

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.

Other Stuff

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.
