We exist for the purpose of preserving history, we are the only organization in the Community that does not spend any money for entertainment of its members.   All money raised through dues, donations, and fund-raisers must go to historic projects in the area.   That is written into our Bylaws.   When we have an activity for our members, they generously pay their own way or donate the refreshments.   Our mission is a serious one, that of historic preservation.  We usually have a good time in the process of accomplishing our projects, and, thanks to the great spirit of voluntarism among our members, the Society has been able to accomplish an enviable record of achievement.
