December update

The Christmas dinners at the museum were a success. There was one mishap when the big mirror in the millinery room fell over but it was before dinner and no one was there but Dorothy who was unhurt.

The museum will be open next Sunday afternoon for the Chamber of Commerce Christmas. We will have snacks and an electric train that is always a hit with the children. Come in and visit. The chamber will have Santa Claus and St. Michael's Hall will be open as well as many businesses.

There was an article in the Sidney Daily News concerning a tax levy the museums in Shelby County are asking to have put on the ballot in the spring. They got the amount wrong. We are only asking .25 mils not 1.25. The historical societies of Shelby County, Jackson Center, Botkins and Anna are also involved.
