I hope I didn't miss anyone. We appreciate you all so much.

The new rooms in out building have finally been completed. Now we are ready to clean things up, decided on displays and get the move-in underway. We hope to host a big open house at Fall Festival. So this Saturday, September 4 we will have a big work day. I will plan on being there around 9 am and we can work until.....well until I drop. LOL. I have invited the local firemen so we can have some brawn to move big things. We also need people to dust, arrange displays, hang pictures, clean windows, sweep floors and even a little touch-up of paint. I'm hoping to get some people with new ideas and that have that display touch so we can make the museum the best it has ever been. I know it is a holiday weekend, but even if you can only come for a little while we will appreciate it. Come on down Senior Rockets and get some of those community service hours for you college application.

We are teaming up with the local business Bloom for a fun little fundraiser. We will be selling fall mums and pumpkins. Orders will be taken via the internet (or get in touch with us) for delivery September 24 just in time for fall decoration. Folks will pick up their order September 24-27 at Fountainview Nursing home (or we may be able to arrange delivery.) Proceeds will go toward the Historical Society Jack Carr Scholarship Fund and other benevolent activities. Watch for order forms on line, on facebook or pickup a form at the museum from the mailbox on the porch of the museum at 106 S Main. Thank you for your support and thank you to Bloom for thinking of us.

If you were planning to visit today please call or text me to set up a mutually convenient time. My apologies. Cindy 316-258-0980.

We have just been informed the 2020 alumni banquet has been cancelled. As far as my records show this has never happened.

What a successful work day. Brad Bradford, Diane Linot, and Cindy Bradford welcomed Alicia Flippin and Cody O'Brien to the museum. Cody is rather new to the area and wanted to come pitch-in on the construction work Saturday, March 14. Alicia is a Rose Hill graduate and daughter of Brad and Cindy. Both of their help and participation is greatly appreciated. Almost all of the stud walls were constructed and installed. We at the society want to thank Cody and Alicia as well as members Brad, Diane and Cindy, for their hard work.

I am so excited. We are starting on the finish of the interior of our nee building at 106 S Main. Tomorrow, Saturday March 14, we will host a workday. It isn't supposed to be a beautiful day but the work is inside. Work time is 10am to 2pm. There is sorting up in the storage, organizing from Christmas, small exhibits to work on, stuff to put away and of course building of walls and whatever else we can get done. Come on down for community service hours, to learn how we work or just to help us out. Maybe around 12 someone will show up with lunch. Love to see you all and show you around.

We are scheduled to be open tomorrow 1-11, but due to the frigid temperatures i think i will stay home. However if anyone out there would like to visit the Museum buildings please call or text Cindy at 316-258-0980.

Don't forget the Hometown Christmas celebration at the Historical Museum. Horse and Buggy rides (a crowd favorite) will return with party bus around town and the new wagon ride behind a team of clydesdales. Whoa! If that isn't enough come make smores and hot cocoa by the open fire. Go inside the 1800s home to warm up and peruse the dolls or to the new back building to learn a bit about Rose Hill History and see what plans we have for this new space. For even more fun visit Pleasant Center School and 4H Building for popcorn and live animals as well as a visit with Santa the jolly old elf. So much fun in store. December 14, 10am to 4pm.

Oh my golly. FREE clothes for any needy families.
I just took a donation to the Rose Hill Christian Church clothes closet. One of the wonderful ladies took me on a tour. They are doing a wonderful job, a lot of work. They have everything from shoes to hunting clothes to Halloween costumes to coats. All organized. Much of it looks new. All in at least good condition. They are open tomorrow 9:30-noon. Any area families in need please use this great resource. God bless those ladies.

I may be a little late with this. I wish i had a couple bushels of field corn for Fall Festival. Still on the cob. We have a corn sheller and i think the kids would have a blast shelling it.
