The WSHS met on Sept. 29, 2014 at the First Christian Church with Caitlin Heusser, Museum Curator for the Town of Windsor and members Wrenda Parker, Sandy Brug, Sue Buxmann, Gene Morey, Marge Straube, and welcomed new member Bonnie Steinbrecher.
Marge reported we received $66.50 from Arcadia Pubishing.
Marge asked Caitlin how people can see the things they donated as she has many calls about that sort of thing. In fact she has someone coming on the 15th interested in this. Caitlin took their name and will get in touch with them to see if she can find these things.
It was decided to forget about the water feature because of the many rules and regulations we would have to follow. We all agreed that the pump handle is much too high to be truly authentic. Sandy will e-mail Austin and give him the info.
Sandy reported that the form for the Parks and Recreation Dept. is finished.
We need to raise some money before we apply for grants as they look at that sort of thing.
It was decided to have a brochure printed when we have more information to put on it.
Sandy will get the Chamber list to send out letters.
We had much discussion about how we will recognize the different level of donors. Also we will be talking to different organizations around Windsor and maybe have some kind of a party for the community to talk about the project.
Gene has many scrapbooks from Raymond Cullison estate; he will take them to Sandy’s house.
Marge and Sue participated in “40’s Forever” at the Loveland Airport. They visited with many people about the POW Camp and many other memories people had.
We will participate in “Windsor Wonderland” at the Boardwalk Galleries which is located across the street from the Olde Town Hall where Santa Claus will be. We will sell pickles and have children put together the foam one and sell the glass ones. Sue will order 2 dozen more. Sue will check on the Christmas in Windsor.
Sue will send a Thank You note to Darrel McNabb for the money that was donated in his name.
Hal Pearson sent his membership in.
Sue is going to try to get in touch with Cheryl Glantz of the AHSGR to see what kind of camera she has for taping videos.
