Volunteers Do It Again


Saturday September 23 the volunteers were cleaning stones at Moffett Cemetery. With 300 plus stones to clean, we need all the volunteers we can get. (And the youngest wants me to say that sometimes, there are cookies for the workers...) Thank you everyone.


Thanks also to the yearbook volunteers who sold our excess yearbooks Saturday to all the alumni who were in town for Homecoming and the all county mixer. A big thank you to the alumni who purchased books to support our preservation of local history. There are still some yearbooks left so if you didn't get one of your parents or grandparents, send us an email for the years you want.


Don't forget the monthly program tonight featuring Dan Scherer at 7:00 pm at the History Center on the square.
