When it comes to the Young Friends of the Osceola County Historical Society, they've got one goal in mind for their organization—raising money to award a scholarship to an Osceola County high school senior who is majoring in history or museum studies or has volunteered at least 40 hours with the historical society.
When it comes to how they raise their money for this scholarship, they have one theme behind their fundraising—a little mingling mixed with adult beverages (for those who are 21 and up of course!).
Throughout the year they host various Historic Happy Hours and once a year they host their annual Pub Crawl.

And really, that is a day we've been looking forward to for months now. From moving the historic buildings at our old site to having authentic replicas of Chickee structures built at our new site and everything in between, we've been working hard to make this dream of ours a reality.
