Blue Springs Old Timers Day

Published April 25, 2008
Blue Springs Old Timers Day is set for Saturday, May 3, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the Blue Springs Recreation Area. (Jackson County, FL)

The Blue Springs Working Group is hosting the event. Allan Tidwell, Working Group leader, says, “The purpose is to assemble those who have known and cherished Blue Springs in order to hear their stories of the ‘old days’ at the spring. We are especially interested in stories before 1970.”

The event begins at 11 a.m. with an informal visit with friends and interviews. A fish fry and covered dish picnic begins at noon. A storytelling session kicks off at 1 p.m.

All who want to tell stories or hear them are invited. Guests are asked to bring: a covered dish, a lawn chair, old photos of Blue Springs, and stories to share or an ear to listen.

For information, call Tidwell at 526-2761, Ext. 3248.
