Good evening everyone! Needless to say this summer has gotten away from me. Everything since the Pie and ice Cream Social has been a blur. There has been some personal stuff going on and now my sister, Margie, and I are going to rebuild our house. Excavation will be starting around Sept. 1st. We were supposed to have a meeting this Sunday Aug. 17th, but obviously that is not going to happen. I AM SETTING A DATE OF SEPTEMBER 14TH AS OUR NEXT MEETING. IíM THINKING 1PM AT THE LIBRARY. PLEASE MARK THIS ON YOUR CALENDARS! This meeting is very important. The future of the Society is at hand. Not to mention our museum. We need to take some of our collection and put it into dry storage. The museum needs to be overhauled. I feel like Iíve been carrying the Society and the museum on my shoulders for the past few years and Iím losing my grip or maybe have even dropped it. And I feel horrible about it. The history of this town is worth saving. I just canít do it alone. Someone either has to take over control of the ship, or help plot a new course. You can either e-mail me here(hit reply), or my e-mail on my phone is Phone is 849-6638. Some of you have my cell # and can call that. Thanks for listening. Mike
