The Nov. 17 meeting Cedar County Historical Society was called to order by President Judy Nichols. Members present were President Judy Nichols, Vice President Bob Phillips, Assistant Treasurer Shirley Potts, Interim Secretary Connie Maupin, Luella Phipps, Sharyl Henry and Kenneth Potts.
Nichols reported work is in progress for the reprinting of “Lyceum Series: Cedar County and the Civil War.”
Nichols will check with Daniel Keith to see when he might be available to present his program on battle flags of the Civil War.
Nichols will research cost of shipping ink cartridges to determine if it is profitable.
Phillips and Nichols will retrieve shelving from the old Fair Play library as time permits.
Members discussed the reprinting of “Historical Sketches of Cedar County”.
Nichols attended the grant program by Leslie James, Field Archivist for the Missouri State Archives, held at the museum.
Luella Phipps reported that 115 guests attended her 90th birthday party and she has now received 104 cards.
A new winter meeting schedule was implemented this month. We will meet as usual on the third Thursday of the month at 1 p.m. rather than 6:30 p.m. This will be in effect through March 2017. The Society does not meet in December.
A decision on the date of the next board meeting will be addressed at the next regular meeting in January.
Luella Phipps donated Merle Phipps’ army fatigue shirt and dress uniform collar brass.
Our next meeting will be at 1 p.m. Jan. 19, in our museum at 106 West Davis in Stockton. Our meetings are open to the public. Our museum and research hours have changed to our winter schedule.
