March meeting

The monthly meeting was held March 15 in the museum. Jim got us up to date on the new Shelby County History Alliance which consists of Ft. Loramie, Sidney Historical, Jackson Center, Botkins and Anna.

The Sidney group will soon be setting up a display that all the museums will contribute to. Jim will be getting together some artifacts that show Ft. Loramie history. Look for it at the Ross Historical building in Sidney probably in April.

Maintenance on the building is a constant worry. The roof will need to be replaced and a gutter and spout repaired however, the mild winter has been a big help to our heating costs. The water has been turned back on in the building.

We are still looking for old photos especially of immigrant ancestors and school classes. Also need history of businesses now and then and of farms. Contact one of the officers or email the address above.

As always the museum will be open Sunday afternoons in June, July and August. Tours can be arranged and anyone can get in almost anytime to do research. Call Dorothy Quinlin 937-295-2659 or Karen Anthony 937-295-2353 or email.
