2017 is the 130th year since Rose Hill moved to its current location to be close to the railroad as it had just came through the area. The railroad brought "progress" to Rose Hill making it better for the farming community to get crops to market as well as delivery of goods to residents.

Fireworks Sales A Success

We were open June 27 through July 5 and it was hot. Anyway, in the process we helped support 5 community groups, made money for the Jack Carr Memorial Scholarship and scraped together a few dollars for the society.

The raffle winners: Connie Hayden won a homemade Uncle Sam and Jim Unrein received a $400 family fireworks package.

We will call this wonderful fundraising activity spearheaded by Daryl Futhey and Rhonda Carr Cooper a terrific success.
