The Christmas dinners are filling up fast. There are already 345 reservations and we can't take many more than 400.

The museum won't be able to participate in the town Christmas activities this year because our dinners will still be going on so I'm sorry to say we won't have the train. I'm sure it will be set up somewhere else on that Sunday.

Jim Rosengarten spoke to Creative Marketing Strategies. They have new management and they may now be able to print on demand so we might be able to get more copies of "Fort Loramie Main Street and Beyond". They would be paperback.

The tables in the museum are very heavy and difficult to carry over to German Heritage so we may buy a couple of the lighter vinyl tables although it isn't certain whether or not they are sturdy enough.

The Fort Loramie Chamber of Commerce will be holding their annual business expo Nov. 6 at 3:30-7:30 in St. Michael's Hall. Public is cordially invited. It's a chance for local businesses to show what they do. There will be refreshments and door prizes.

We got a donation of military effects that belonged to Homer Bornhorst who was in the Merchant Marines during WWII.

The Rosengartens donated a new cordless phone with 4 handsets so we can have phone service all over the museum.

German Heritage was a success. Except for two inches of rain Friday night the weather cooperated. We sold several books and we have only 7 copies left of "Fort Loramie, Main Street and Beyond". Steve Meyer was the winner of the afghan that was made by Judy Prueter and raffled off.

It looks like the work on the front of the church is finished.
