April updates

Our annual meeting will be held Thursday, May 15 at 7:30 pm in the museum. Refreshments will be served. It's a good time to pay dues. You don't have to be a member to attend so come and look around and see what we are all about.

We are thinking of holding a genealogy day some Sunday this summer when we're open. If you're interested in learning how to research your family tree or if you're an expert and want to come and talk genealogy with others, we have research materials and forms and charts. You can also come any Sunday afternoon in the summer or make arrangements to come at other times.

We have had a donation of a scale and planter from the Leo Goubeaux estate. They and some other tools in our collection will be displayed this summer.

The phone has been fixed. Our number is 937-295-3855. If no answer wait for the beep and leave a message.

Fort Recovery State Museum will be holding a huge artifact show on May 4th from 12 to 4 including prehistoric and battlefield artifacts and rifles. Over 20 collectors from 5 Archaological Society of Ohio organizations will set up on the lawn.  There will also be a video of the late Hal Sherman's paintings 2 of which we have in our museum. 419-375-4649. Organized by Ken Sowards of Fort Loramie.
