To All the Members:
I hope that everyone is enjoying a delightful summer-vacationing, swimming, fishing, sunning or just plain resting. Although there has not been much activity at the Museum the last couple of months, the Archives has been a beehive due to the information various people and groups want in preparation for the Ypsilanti Heritage Festival to be held the weekend of August 23, 24 and 25th. Although the stepped up activity at this time makes additional work for Foster Fletcher and Billie Zolkosky, it is nice to know that we can contribute so much to the authenticity of the theme of the Festival.
In regard to the Society's activity during the Festival, this year we will not hold our Annual Trash and Treasure Sale due to the unavailability of the Carriage Barn. In its place the Board decided to hold a raffle, in which we give away Cash Prizes and some items from our Museum Gift Shop. As a consequence, I am asking every member to do their best to sell at least five raffle tickets. It is important that we have a good sale as this is our one big money-making project of the year. I know you will do your best and ahead of time I thank you for your effort.
