Deason Hunt reported Old Settlers was very successful. We got the word out about the society and got a good list of names. The society will need to do some follow up with the names. Everyone had a great time and enjoyed the time spent together.
Deason suggested giving the genealogy room a fresh look. He brought a computer generated layout of what the room would look like. Some of the things we don’t need will need to be packed away. Deleane will work with us on getting extra shelving if it is needed. Some libraries will be doing away with shelving and she may be able to get it for us.
Deason suggested participating in the Hwy 80 garage sale on Saturday, October 16th in Mineola. This will make the society more visible in the Mineola area. Everyone would need to donate items and help work the booth. If you are donating anything you need to have it priced and brought to the booth by 7:30 am. It was suggested to donate all left over items to APET or Goodwill. A motion was made by Dorothy Harbin, seconded by LaHoma Clanton to participate in the Hwy 80 garage sale on Saturday, October 16th with the understanding that all left over items will be donated to APET or Goodwill. Motion passed.
Meeting adjourned at 8:30 pm
