COSHOCTON -- "Home Gadgets" is the topic for the Johnson-Humrickhouse Museum's upcoming Our Town Stories discussion on Thursday, Feb. 11 at noon.

During this hour-long discussion, they will delve into "the old days" in Coshocton County.

This month's topic, home gadgets, can be defined as any tool or appliance used at your home when you were a child. It could be electric appliances such as a toaster, washing machine or mixer, but more likely it will be a manually driven device that come to mind -- cherry pitters, blenders, cream separators, crimpers. If you still have the item, bring it, and if not, try to bring a photo to share.

Our Town Stories occurs monthly on the second Thursday of the month at noon. It is always informative, amusing and surprising. Expect an engaging mix of storytelling, personal recollections, historical records and interesting people. Make this hour your lunch break -- feel free to eat your meal while we talk. Admission for the program is free, and beverages and cookies will be provided

March's topic is "Radio Stations and Radios."
