I wanted to give you an update on the website issues that we have been having the last couple of weeks I have manage to get the site back and working on the yahoo website. I have lost all of the posts for the year of 2013 but have managed to recreate most of the contact forms and I have updated the Programs page with July and August meeting information. I will be working on getting the links back onto the website as soon as I can but it is at least in a usable state right now.
I thank you for your patience in this matter and I am sorry for the inconvenience this has caused to anyone.
Hey everyone I hoped you had a happy new year. Just wanted to let you know that I updated the meeting programs page with the new dates and meetings that I have so far. One important note is that next month we will have a show and tell meeting so if you have a unique picture or artifact you would like to share please email me through our contact page or the email i have provided on the programs page. I hope to see you all at the business meeting tonight. Take care.
Just wanted to let everyone know that our meeting is this Thursday the 10th and that we will be having Geoff Elliot doing a program on Abraham Lincoln’s Inaugural Train Journey which started 150 years ago this Friday. Geoff Elliot is a prolific researcher on Abraham Lincoln and even has his own website devoted to him at http://abrahamlincolnblog.blogspot.com/.
Also as a note the Meeting Programs page has been updated with 2011 dates and information for this program is on there so if you want to you can visit that page be clicking here. More programs will be added as they get arranged and notice will be given when they are posted.
I know this is a little last minute but I wanted to let you know about all the details concerning our Annual Banquet on November 11th. It will be held at the Canton’s Women’s Club and dinner will be served at 6:30p.m. Your menu choices are a pork tenderloin with garlic mashed potatoes and roasted broccoli or a vegetarian lasagna with roasted broccoli.
The program for the night will be given by Christopher Kenney from the Mckinley Museum and is entitled Let Us Ever Remember…McKinley’s Presidency Through Film. This program chronicles the presidency of William Mckinley through rarely film clips from the time and should be very interesting.
The charge for the dinner is $15 dollars and will be needed at the time of the banquet. We need you to confirm your reservation by Tuesday the 9th at the very latest so that we can have an accurate number to give to the women’s club.
You can confirm by emailing the treasurer Martha Mertz at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can call me at any time at 330-477-6125. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at any time and I hope to see you all at the banquet.

I just wanted to tell you that September program will be Mandy Pond from the Massillon Museum giving up the program that was supposed to be for August which is about preserving your family’s oral histories. It should be a very good program so I hope you can all make it. The programs page of the website has also been updated with the program.
Hi everyone I wanted to get a call to action out to everyone concerning the Stark County Fair that is coming up here from August 31 to September 6.
We have a space at the fair this year and we really need folks to volunteer to man it through the week. We have divided the days into 4 and 5 hour shifts so you wouldn’t have to be there all day and there will be two people per shift. A lot of spaces are still open so we really need your help getting these shifts filled in.
If you want to help please contact our publicity chair Stephanie Houck. You can contact her by using the contact form that is on our website and picking publicity on the subject list. She will be able to give days and times that are available. Anyways I want to thank everyone that can help out ahead of time and we will see you at the fair. Thanks.
Hi everyone I know this is very last minute but there has been a change in the program for this Thursday’s meeting. Mandy Pond from the Massillon Museum was unable to make it to the meeting for her program so instead Carolyn Caskey will be giving a presentation on the Fairmount Children’s Home which was located just south of Alliance and served as an orphanage from the late 1870’s to 1973. The meeting will still be at the same place and time so I hope to see you all there. Thanks and sorry for the change.
The July meeting is this Monday, July 5 for our Annual Picnic. It will be held at the Sippo Lake Clubhouse located at 5300 Tyner Street NW
Canton, OH 44708. Please bring your own table set-up and beverage of choice, plus a side dish, salad, or dessert to share. The main course will be provided. Our program for the evening will be presented by Richard Halti. He will be speaking on the story of the Dueber-Hampden Watchworks.
