Marla Hathhorn, Secretary

The Thursday, July 21, Brown County Genealogical Society meeting was opened by President Ray Thieme, with 13 members and guests present.

This month’s program was about the Trails of Central and Western Kansas by Wes Miller. Miller started by talking about the earliest settlements of our country. Kansas had large amount of settlers due to the Homestead Act and the arrival of the Railroads. Many nationalities settled in Kansas during the 1850s and 60s.

Secretary Marla Hathhorn read the June minutes. Treasurer Gail Coker-Carr presented the Treasurer’s report. The club approved both reports.

Penny Milroy gave an update on Santa’s Attic, which will be held on Nov. 12 at the Hiawatha High School.

A new keyboard and monitor were purchased to replace the 10 year old equipment which was no longer working.

The Society will host a garage sale in conjunction with the Highway 36 Treasure Hunt that will be held on Sept. 15 through 18. The Society will gladly accept furniture and other items from anyone wishing to donate, but no clothing will be accepted.

The next meeting will be on Aug. 18 when Wes Miller will present a program on the history of the City of Hamlin. The public is invited to attend.

Refreshments were provided by Milroy.
