On July 14, 65 visitors attended the annual Drummond Home Ice Cream Social.

“We were really pleased with the turnout,” said Drummond Home Manager Beverly Whitcomb. “Visitors got to view the Drummond Heirloom Exhibit, which features items normally kept in storage throughout the year. Four storytellers shared Drummond family history, women's customs and fashions of the early 1900s.

“Visitors also enjoyed cowboy poetry by Bob Bright, while enjoying ice cream and punch,” Whitcomb said.

The Drummond Home wishes to extend thanks to the volunteers who helped make the day a success: Bob Bright, Ralston; Diane Farris, Bartlesville; Diana Garrett, Hominy; Joe Bush, Shidler; Frederick Drummond, Pawhuska; Cody Flud, Wynona; and the friends of the Fred Drummond Home.

The Drummond Home has been owned and operated by the Oklahoma Historical Society since 1980. The Drummond Home, located at 305 North Price Ave. in Hominy, is open Wednesday through Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., with tours from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and on Sundays from 1-5 p.m. with the last tour beginning at 4:00 p.m. For more information, please call Manager Beverly Whicomb at (918) 885-2374.
