If buildings could talk, Ladoga’s Normal Hall would have quite a few interesting tales to tell.
First a college, the building now stands as a community meeting place and one of the most prevalent historic locations in Ladoga. However, there are costs to maintaining a building like Normal Hall. “You’ve got maintenance, lights, insurance, upkeep and all that,” said Claude Barker, a member of Historic Ladoga.
To keep up with costs, Barker put together a car show and ice cream social as a fundraiser. Sunday is set to be the 10th annual car show, with registration from noon to 2 p.m. and the show running noon to 4 p.m. “I have a little hot rod, and I like cars and I go to car shows, and I always wanted to get one started with ice cream,” he said. “A lot of people said, ‘I’ll come there for the ice cream.’”
