    We are honored these people came to tour our museum, and I just wish we had had a cooler day. I encourage people to call us at 506-1575 and book a tour. We love to show people who express an interest in history what we have in the museum. We welcome new members. Our next meeting is at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, August 20. Anyone with a love for history is welcome!
