Brownville-Brownville Junction Historical Society Meets

Submitted by Susan Worcester on August 15, 2018 - 4:22pm
The B-BJ Historical Society met on August 14th at the museum. Here is a recap of the discussion:
There have been many visitors at the museum this year. 
The bank account has a healthy balance, thanks to the CD that we have had for years. We took in $533 this month in dues, donations, and sales. Also we had a gift of a $50 roll of stamps! That will cover mailing of two newsletters this year.
The book account is also doing well! We have fewer than 10 copies of Ken’s first book available and Susan has ordered more of the revised book to have on hand. 
We are still hoping that the crew at the Charleston Correctional Facility will be able to tackle our bathroom rebuild before next spring. 
Dick DeWitt donated his time to install two 8’ LED lights in our work area which greatly improved the lighting there.  We still need to investigate better lighting options for the main area of the museum.
