BROWNVILLE — The Brownville-Brownville Junction (B-BJ) Historical Society and Parish House Museum has had another good year!
We have a small number of volunteers who work diligently to keep things moving ahead. That includes keeping the museum open two days a week during the summer and early fall, keeping new acquisitions up to date in our record keeping, inputting information about current items and records in our PastPerfect program, answering inquiries from people who either come in to the museum or email us looking for specific information and organizing what we have to make more information and items accessible to visitors and easier for volunteers to locate. These are just a few of the tasks that we are working on and if you have a few hours to volunteer, your time would be much appreciated. Keep us in mind next summer!
We are continuing to market Ken Hatchette’s book and revised book about the Canadian Pacific Railroad in... Read More

MILO - A Veterans Day dinner brought nearly 200 people out Monday in Milo.
The annual Three Rivers Kiwanis Veterans Day Dinner has been serving up meals to honor the holiday for nearly 15 years.
The event is a way for the Kiwanis Club to say thank you to veterans from all branches of military service.
Veterans and their families enjoyed fellowship, musical entertainment provided by the Elementary Veterans Singers, and of course, a great meal prepared by Elaine's Cafe in Milo with help from several Kiwanians, and the PVHS Key Club.
"They've served their country, so we need to serve them," said Brenda Kelley, the Lt. Governor for the Kiwanis Div. 2. "We need to show we're proud of them and we appreciate everything they've done for us."
A special ceremony honoring prisoners of war and those missing in action was also hosted Monday by American Legion Post 41.

The TRC Webcam server was recently struck with some nasty ransomware. Our Webcam Guy has spent numerous hours rebuilding the server from scratch, and all the webcams are now back up and running.
We are looking for any and all donatinos to help with the costs of this, and the normal upkeep of the 20+ live webcams we have here on the site.
TRC hopes to continue bringing these webcams to the world for years to come, but we need your help!
