COSHOCTON — "First Dates and Proms," the next topic for the Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum’s Our Town Stories, takes place Dec. 13, at noon.

Although dating and proms have evolved over the years, from parlor courtship to big dances complete with live music, both remain somewhat of an American institution. Come share memories during this hour-long discussion. 

JHM’s Our Town Stories gathering occurs monthly on the second Thursday of the month at noon. The conversation animates "the old days" as participants conjure up memories, share personal stories, and recall Coshocton County as it once was. All are welcome to participate, whether you grew up in Coshocton or not. The atmosphere is casual and the discussion is always informative, fun and surprising. Admission for the program is free, and beverages and cookies will be provided. Bring a sandwich and make the most of your lunch break.

January’s topic is "The 1930s and 40s."
