WELCOME TO OUR FIRST NEWSLETTER!
With the coming of the holiday season, we wish you a Howling Halloween, a Thanks-filled Thanksgiving, and a Joyous Christmas.
Our year to date has been a busy one. We have several volunteers who are working a few hours every week to get things
organized. We can then set up displays and share items appropriate to the Museum and Society.
The June fundraiser was a financial success for the Society and a happy surprise for the winner, Mr. Bill Cox.
ARTIST NORMA HOWARD
The Norma Howard display brought many visitors to the museum and gave volunteers an opportunity to explain the purpose
and goals of the Historical Society.
Our membership is growing with several new members this year. We are always seeking new members and would especialy like
to attract more young people. If anyone has any suggestions, please contact the Society. Membership is $5.00.
Officers were elected at the August meeting. They are:
Betty Thibault-Vice President
Committees were also set up for Budget, Assets, Bylaws, Membership, and Publicity.
ANNUAL CHRISTMAS DINNER
The annual Christmas dinner is Thursday, December 1st at 6 p.m. at the Community Center.
We received three very appreciated donations in September. An anonymous donor gave a nice cash donation. Ray and Kathy
Fioretti gave a glass showcase which will allow us to display more of the many items we have had stored for lack of display
space. Mr. Monte Bankhead donated a Du-Fold sofa which has been in his family at least 80 years. It is upholstered, with
beautiful wooden arms and claw feet. Many thanks to these individuals for their generous donations!
The society is selling tickets for a chance to take home the Halloween cake baked and graciously donated by Aline and
Charley Montgomery. A big thanks to them both!
Our next newsletter will be in January, 2006. If anyone has suggestions or has an item they would like to include, please
contact the Historical Society at 967-2161.
