Bush Hill Eve recap
Our first Bush Hill Eve (and 24th Bush Hill Heritage Festival) was a hit. I dressed up in old Quaker garb and it was fun to see people do a double-take when they saw me out of the corner of their eyes. I had been worried about having enough information on my great-great-grandmother, Mecie English (Cynthia Armecia White English Parrish) to stay in character, but I needn't have worried because conversations were short. When I asked people "How art thou?" they just giggled and tried to use "thee" in a sentence. Sometimes they just giggled because their mouths were full - the old fashioned dinner cooked by the ladies at church was excellent.
