Two Members Recognized for Contributions

Two members were recognized for their contribution this spring.

Shirley BATES, long-time newsletter editor, keeper of genealogical research center and acquisitions manager, membership chairman, and many other jobs was presented with an honorary lifetime membership by the society at the March society meeting.

Treasurer Sally ALLCORN was recognized for her three-term service as treasurer at the May society meeting. She has also served on committees and has done research and organization work in the library among her many contributions.

Thanks to both of these ladies and friends who have given “above and beyond” to the society and the cause of Wood County genealogy in general.
