The Blog has gone wanting for updates during 2012. For this I personally apologize. I will do better during 2013. Still, we have all been as busy as little bees getting everything accomplished.
You can visit our website at www.mcdonaldcohistory.org or you can check us out on Facebook at McDonald County Historical Society! There is another Facebook page called the Museum, but it is not maintained by any active members and only has old posts. Please redirect your bookmarks to our new page!
During 2012 we accomplished so much!
We updated and published our Quarterly Newsletters, Heritage and History on time
We successfully reached our goal of 100 members
We are on track in compiling a pictorial history
We are on track with our renovation of the Courthouse
We have successfully raised all funding for our project through private donation
Stay with us to see what is accomplished during 2013!
The Society was contacted by the staff of our U.S. Senator, Roy Blunt. With only days to prepare, we were requested to open the Historic Courthouse Doors for a personal tour by the Senator! We hurriedly made phone calls and were all flitting here and yon in search of coffee and donuts, brooms and dustpans, and the like. We thought we had some downtime after the Christmas Party and Contractor Bill was installing the doors on the east side. Our floors were set to be going down too. Nonetheless, it was exciting to get to meet Senator Blunt, shake his hand, and share our progress with him!
