WINDSOR/SEVERANCE HISTORICAL SOCIETY 2014 NEWSLETTER
Greetings members and everyone interested in the history of this area,
Our website is active now with Kaile Melendez as the new web master. We post the minutes on the site so everyone can read them. Please go to our web site at www.thewshs.org.
We now have a face book page and have been posting historical pictures on it and asking questions about the pictures. Please like us on face book.
We started talking to Austin Weichel early in the year about a bronze statue to recognize our heritage, water, sugar beets and the family farm work ethic. Also to recognize all the people who made the village and museum possible. We are still in the starting stages. We have started the process of talking to the town and getting the papers in order. Please watch for our announcements as things begin to pick up.
We have been receiving royalties from Acadia Publishing for our book.
We were a sponsor for the Windsor Harvest Festival and set up a booth with some historical information for the people.
We had our property cleaned up several times and had some dead aspen trees taken down.
Several scrapbooks were donated to us from the Raymond Cullison Estate. They will need to be preserved for the future.
Marge Straube and Sue Buxmann participated in “40’s Forever” at the Loveland Airport. They took information about the POW camp and visited with many people and heard good memories.
We will participate in “Windsor Wonderland” and will be in Severance for their Christmas celebration the same day, Dec 6, 2014.
As you can see we are still very active and soon will be very busy. We could really use some more help. We meet the fourth Monday of each month at 10:00am at the First Christian Church at the corner of Fifth and Walnut in Windsor. Come join us! We would love to have you!
