Roll call was given by Caroline heath with the question, ‘How are you involved in the upcoming Sesquicentennial Celebration?’. All members are involved in some way, with several helping with multiple activities.

The use of the space was donated by owner Carla Haga. Crystal displayed the signs and bow created by Carla that will mark the site, which will serve as a welcome and hospitality center. Along with historical items, provided by many in the community, history books will be on sale, as well as envelopes for the new Time Capsule, which will be buried October 1st and opened in 50 years.
History was obtained from old copies of the Chrisman Leader, many of which had to be obtained from microfilm, researched by Leslie Henry “enjoying” many hours of viewing.
The special committee spent the summer gathering items for display.
The program “Grandma’s Gloves” was presented by Kay Fidler, bringing back memories of a time when gloves were required for women in many social situations. Several club members displayed gloves worn by family members in the past.
