Vandalia Area Historical Society President Paul Ray opened the meeting by asking for new discoveries or donations.
Charline Teague reported that she didn’t have a complete list and had to obtain some additional information as to donors.
After regular business was conducted, the discussion turned to finalizing details of the participation in Prairie Days activities. Those involved reported that everything was in order and “ready to go.”
It was agreed that the museum would be open from 9:30 a.m.-6 p.m. on Saturday and 12 a.m.-4 p.m. on Sunday.
Paul Ray then asked for ideas regarding a fundraising activity to be held in the fall or early winter.
A couple of suggestions came from the floor and those present were encouraged to bring other ideas to the October meeting on October 18 at 6:30 p.m. at the Museum Genealogy Library.
Everyone is encouraged to attend our meetings.
The meeting adjourned at 7:30 p.m.
