Come for the Sloppy Joes and HAHA's famous brownies.
Come for history and funny stories about Custer State Park.
Come for the chance to win CA$H in the Lucky Number Raffle.
Come for the debut of Sally Svenson's songs about Custer State Park.
Come to support Hermosa Arts and History Association-- your local, all-volunteer Museum and Community Center-- so we can continue to promote the local history and arts in eastern Custer County.
Craig Pugsley and Dick Miller-- each long-time Custer state Park employees and good story-tellers-- will give the history of Custer State Park and talk about their experiences working there. I'm told we should expect some funny stories.
Sally Svenson will debut a couple songs she has written for Custer State Park's 100th anniversary.
Admission is free and the supper is for a free-will donation.
Our fundraiser is a Lucky Number Raffle-- donate your favorite dollar amount and you are entered in the raffle to win cash prizes. We will also have some Hermosa memorabilia for Silent Auction.
See the HAHA website 2019 Events Page for complete details.

This is a reminder that the April HAHA meeting will be Monday, April 8, 2019; meeting starts at 6:30 pm.
Meeting place is supposed to be at the museum building in Hermosa. If the weather is too cold, the meeting will be at the Hermosa Branch Library—-in [lower level] meeting room. Hope to see you there. --- Donna (secretary for HAHA)
All are welcome to attend the monthly HAHA meetings-- we'd love to have you join us: we promote the local history and arts and educate the community, and we have fun doing so-- it's not a coincidence that our acronym is HAHA.
This month we will be finalizing plans for our April 27th HAHA "Hermosa Saturday Night" fundraiser to be held at the Hermosa School. This year's program celebrates the 100th Anniversary of Custer State Park.

Linda Hasselstrom says--
It seems so appropriate that Candice Leigh, HAHA volunteer, accessioned for the HAHA collection this quilt made by a number of Hermosa women in Ladies Aid and purchased at an auction by my mother, Mildred Hasselstrom.
During the auction my mother got so excited to win that she bid against herself, raising the price. Because the money was going to a good cause, the auctioneer just smiled and kept going.
If anyone knows the history of who made this quilt, please let us know at HAHA.
