HCH Table Theme for Dixon’s! We’re Not Just Powder Horns

As an educational treat for the public, we will be displaying horn items, other than powder horns, at the HCH table this year at Dixon’s. A few years ago we ran a display titled “The Honourable Company of Horners: We’re Not Just Powder Horns!” It was very well received and it is time to revive that theme.

If you have a horn item that you would be willing to display, please bring it to the table any time during the weekend.

Also, please consider helping at the guild table- many hands make light work.

If you have any questions, please contact Kris (


The HCH Executive Committee looks forward

to seeing a great turnout at this year’s fair!
