Message from the President . . . .

Welcome to 2017. We each have 365 days in which we can make a difference in our lives, our families and our community. We will be leaving footprints and making history every single day.

Hardin County is blessed to have an abundance of wonderfully dedicated historians that have spent hundreds of hours recording and transcribing our history. Many of you collected artifacts and helped establish a great history museum. Some worked on cemetery walls and grave stones while others placed markers at important sites. This work is a significant benefit to all Hardin Countians. Thank you for your work, it is truly appreciated.

I also want to thank my executive committee, Susan McCrobie, Anita Goodin, Charlie Skees, Mike Bell, Charlie Lantz and Kenny Tabb for their tireless support in 2016. I look forward to another outstanding year working with them to strengthen and grow our society. We are already thinking ahead for new projects and welcome your ideas.

I hope to see you at the quarterly meetings and I encourage you to invite a friend. Let's keep our membership growing!  Our guest speakers always bring interesting tales of past adventures to entertain and inspire us. Don't forget to make a reservation for dinner as accurate numbers help keep our dinner costs down. The meetings are free and open to the public. You can call 270-765-2515 for more information.  Happy New Year,
