Genealogy Room has distinguished Visitors
During our monthly meeting we had the honor of a visit from some
distinguished visitors. These folks were in town to present a check
to the Archive Committee and stopped in to visit with us. We were 
happy to show them our new Genealogy room and to also help
one of the visitors with some information.
The Genealogy group appreciated the time spent visitng with us!


Our Genealogy room was honored to have these distinguished visitors on May 13, 2013.
