Coal Miner's Ball
The Coal Miner's Ball is an annual event that honors the old-timers who worked or provided goods and services for the coal mines in Sutton and Chickaloon. Members of the Alpine Historical Park will conduct interviews and each year new honorees are inducted into the Old Timer’s Hall of Fame and their photo and biography are added to the permanent display at the Alpine Historical Park.
The Alpine Historical Park will be doing our annual fundraising raffle and silent auction to be held at the Coal Miner’s Ball Saturday, last Saturday in April at the Alpine Inn in Sutton. This celebration, in conjunction with the non-profit Coal Miner’s Ball Committee, includes dinner, music, entertainment and celebration of past and present Coal Miner’s Hall of Fame inductees. Proceeds from this raffle and silent auction will be used for our ongoing projects for the historical preservation and improvements of the park facilities.
Sutton Community Picnic
The Alpine Historical Park hosts an annual community picnic at the Alpine Historical Park in Sutton. Old Timers and community members gather at the park to enjoy the warm summer days, the park, and community friendships. AHS will provide the hamburgers, hotdogs, condiments and juice. We ask everyone else to bring a potluck dish, chips, or dessert. There will be a dessert and silent auction as well. For your listening enjoyment, live music!
