Thanks to all those members who made contribution of time and resources and hard labor and sweat to pull off our booth at the 105th Old Settlers Reunion earlier this month. Your newsletter editor took a week off afterwards to recover, but just couldn’t stay away any longer, and that’s why you are being bombarded with posts now.
The booth was a success from many viewpoints including lots of folks saw we were active and many stopped in to talk or inquire about research or relatives or just to look at our exhibits. We didn’t get all visitors logged, but we had between 60 and 70 people sign up for our free drawing and others who signed the registration tablet.
A good number of our members showed up to work and also stayed to visit. Thanks again to all of you for braving the heat, sand, and humidity.
We learned a few things which will help us in future endeavors of this nature. My personal opinion is that we had an “A number 1 booth” and were an asset for the Old Settlers Reunion.
