The La Vernia Historical Association invites volunteers to help “Sift for Sherds” of historic Suttles pottery on Tuesday, April 29, from 5:30-7 p.m. in the Richter Drywall yard, at 4092 C.R. 342 near Chihuahua Street in La Vernia.

Participants must take heavy gloves, a hand trowel or hand shovel, a shovel, a bucket (if possible), and water for drinking. Dust masks and sunblock are recommended. Sawhorses are also needed. Restroom facilities will not be available. Children 15 and under must be accompanied by an adult.

The dirt was excavated from a construction site near the pottery business which was operated by Isaac and George Suttles, Union soldiers who made pottery in La Vernia from the 1870s to the 1920s in the historical downtown area. The dirt contains many broken pieces of Suttles pottery. All finds will be property of the state of Texas in the care of the LVHA.

The dirt must be very dry to sift; therefore if it rains one or two days prior to the event, sifting will be canceled.

For more information, call 830-779-2636 or visit www.LaVerniaHistory.com.
