Looking for a fun way to ring in the New Year? Look no further than the Barrow County Museum.

The Barrow County Historical Society will be hosting the inaugural New Year’s Eve “Jug Drop” at the museum on Thursday, Dec. 31.

Local merchants will be on hand selling food and other merchandise. The event will also feature free drawings for gifts from local businesses.

The Barrow County Historical Society will be offering special refreshments including Nodoroc Mud (hot chocolate) and Wog Nog (special apple cider).

Other activities include live music, dancing and a “Miss Jug” contest in which local men will compete to see who makes the prettiest and most talented “woman.”

For more information about the event, contact Susan, Teeny, Beth or June at jugdrop@yahoo.com or visit the Jug Drop Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Winder-GA/Jug-Drop/173773571565. To date, approximately 320 people have joined the group to discuss the jug family, keep up-to-date on “Jug Drop” happenings and see photos of the preparations.

The Jug Drop will take place at the Barrow County Museum, 74 West Athens Street in Winder, from 8 p.m. until midnight.
