Home Show
Henderson Home Show

Each year the Henderson Chamber of Commerce hosts a Home Show the last weekend in February as an opportunity for business from Henderson and the surrounding communities to advertise their products and services.  Those in attendance can anticipate hourly door prizes, product and services discounts, introductions to new products and businesses, a Pancake Feed from 7:30 am – 9 am., lunch options from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m . and homemade ice cream from the HHCS Jr. Auxiliary.

German Smorgasbord

The smorgasbord includes a variety of German foods as it was prepared by the pioneer mothers. The main ingredients were readily available to them since all could be preserved through drying and canning or were available to them as produce was secured daily such as cream, milk and eggs. They relied heavily on flour ground from the grain they raised. Meat was available at all times, butchered in the winter then it would be cured, smoked and hung in cellars for summer consumption. Much meat was also canned along with fruit and vegetables and stored in root cellars for year round use.  Following the meal, the Heartland Senior High Band, Junior High Band and Jazz Band perform a concert.
