President Vicki Wright called the January 20 meeting of the Vandalia Area Historical Society by asking for new donations or discoveries.
The following donations were reported: two large bronze plaques were donated by the City of Vandalia, one identifying the Community Building and the other one noting the Vandalia Centennial Celebration held August 3-10, 1974. Allan Stoutz donated many excellent photos he had taken over a period of several years of the Vandalia area.
Both of these donations are much appreciated and add much to our museum.
The remainder of the meeting was spent discussing final details concerning our Fundraiser Card Party being held this Saturday, January 27 at the museum.
The museum will open at 5 p.m., supper will be served at 6 p.m. with card playing to begin promptly at 7 p.m.
Tickets are $25 each and there are still a few available by calling Charlene Teague at 594-3026, Pat Trower at 594-3999, or Vicki Wright at 594-3657. Come join us for a fun evening.
The tentative date for re-opening the museum is March 31.
