Reservations are filling up for the Christmas dinners. If you still want to sign up call Dorothy Quinlin at 937-295-2659. We can still use some help from adults and teens. You don't have to sign up for all 4 days. The greenery has gone up and the talented Larry Warren has decorated some of the rooms. Alice Barhorst bought new greenery for the country store.

Don Gusching had an idea to have a drop-off area by the front door so some of our visitors don't have to walk as far especially if the weather is bad.

The new history book is coming along nicely. We are working to have it ready for Christmas sales but we can still use some funding. We will let everyone know when it is ready.

Tom and Jan Busse donated a new freezer. The old one must have been at least 40 years old. It came from Montgomery Ward. And speaking of old, the roof is deteriorating badly and will have to be replaced. More shingles fall off every time we have a wind.

If you would like to donate for a specific project such as fixing the roof or setting up a proper website contact Jim Rosengarten at 937-295-3998. Donations are tax deductible.

If you have time on your hands and a tolerance for tedious tasks and would like to help Karen Anthony organize the funeral cards call her at 937-295-2353. Any time you want to help with anything at the museum feel free to volunteer. Don't wait to be asked. It's your museum.
