Good cold afternoon from the Heritage Center. Progress is occurring every day. We do need your help.

If you have any items regarding history of Elm Springs we would like for you to put them on loan to us. Yes there is a written contract about the items being on loan and ownership of them. We are looking for anything from the 1870's through about 1940. Pictures, household goods, memorabilia from things like Willis Shaw etc. Please remember our center is all about Elm Springs.

I am also still needing you to bring by any picture of may have of yourself or loved ones in their military uniform. I am working on creating a pictorial salute to the veterans of Elm Springs. You can also send to me. Any pictures you bring in I will scan and you take the original back!

Thanks for your support.

Some sad news from the Heritage Center today. Our refrigerator has given up the ghost. We are looking a refrigerator to be donated to the center. Just the basics, no ice maker etc is required. Do you have one you are no longer using? Consider donated to the Elm Springs Heritage Center. Your donation is also tax deductible. Thanks!
