Exciting day! Painting on the Freedom Rock is done. Because of rain, the tent is still covering the rock. Check back in a couple of days for better pictures and a description of the meaning of each picture. After 9/10, please stop and view the rock. If anyone happens to meet Bubba Sorenson from Greenfield,IA, please tell him thank you. 

   We have our new audio-video system installed and it even works. As the pictures show, any program will be able to be seen and heard in the adjoining room. This new system should allow the seating of at least 30 or more additional people.  Everyone is invited to hear Lisa Ossian this Sunday, Sept.7, tell about WWII on the homefront.

 Several projects have been started this week. The camera and some of the wiring have been installed in the large meeting room. We are waiting for the TVs and speakers to be hung. When this is completed, our seating capacity for programs will be increased by at least 30 people. As you can see from the pictures, the Freedom Rock is being prepared for painting and the pilings are poured for the bridge to be set back in place. Of course our cool weather gave way to over 90 degrees while these two projects were being done. Also Richard Ferguson just unloaded our 1935 Oliver Model 70 which he had finished painting. Thanks to all our volunteers who do a great job. Keep checking this site for further updates.
