NEW on

One of the main reasons I started in 2005 was the idea that the best way to preserve our past was by sharing as much of it as possible with others.  Each month there are dozens of events around the State including everything from the Annual multi-day events to 1 hour meetings in the basement of remote libraries and churches.  In the past, I have posted notices about these events online as I come acorss them.

The Events Calendar was recently added to in an effort to better organize these announcements, and allow visitors to look for events that may be happening around them.  And, Registered Users can submit their own events by clicking on the day of the event, and then clicking the Add an Event link at the bottom of the page.  Once submitted, an email notification is sent to the appropriate volunteers who will make sure the content is acceptable (we don't want the hooligans posting non-fsamily oriented materials) and will then approve the posting.

PLEASE NOTE:  While we will make every effort to ensure the accuracy of event dates and times, ultimately we can't be held accountable for this information.  We will try to make an effort to provide contact information for each item posted so anyone interested in attending an particular event will be able to verify date/time/location information with someone.

 So, if you know of any upcoming (or ongoing) events in your area, please take the time to Add an event to the calendar.  Or, if you don't feel comfortable adding an event yourself, you can always send an email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it with information, and I will do my best to post it myself.
