The President’s Message
What can I say? These are unprecedented times in our lives. We are all in this together and through understanding,
compassion and educated decisions we will get through this.
Our museum remains closed to maintain a healthy environment. We hope to open in March 2021 when we hold our
Open House on Sunday, March 7, 2021. We will keep you informed as the date approaches.
Although the Society is closed our volunteers have been very busy reorganizing, classifying and archiving over
hundreds of donations of artifacts, photos and documents as they arrive. Many thanks to Shirley & Bill Shockley, and
Mary Beth McDermott who continue to work on this task. The daily activities of our Society still continue. Elaine Titus
continues to maintain our financial records. Karen Dingley keeps our membership data and prepares the newsletter.
Board members continue to maintain their committee activities and we all stay focused through email communication.
As all organizations are suffering from this pandemic, we, too, have experienced a loss in revenue, especially having
to cancel our Fall Entertainment Show and loss of visitors to the Society. The Society is holding a sub sale for a fund
raiser. Tickets are available and they will be honored through the month of January 2021 at Roman Pantry and Italian
Kitchen. Remember with the holidays coming these would make a great gift for family and friends. Tickets are
available from any Board member or by calling the Society.
Blessings to all for Happy, Healthy, and Safe Holidays this season.
Rae Walzer, President
