Exciting things are happening at the Museum! We have LONG needed a restroom on the first floor of the building for our visitors as well as our volunteers, and it’s about to happen! A small addition is being added to the west end of the building to house a fully handicapped restroom to the north and a small kitchenette on the south. We are hoping to have it shelled in before the snow flies and completed before we reopen next spring. If you wish to make a donation to help offset the costs of this project, please send to Earlville Community Historical Society, PO Box 683, Earlville, IL 60518. Every little bit helps! Thanks in advance!
We have always been fortunate to have the support from our members and community whether its the extra couple of bucks you drop in our donation crock, or a “keep the change” when purchasing a calendar, buying a membership, or including us in your annual donation or as a memorial for your loved one. However, Christmas came early this year when Dave and Helen Michelsen came forth last month and wrote a check for $6,363 to the Historical Society to pay off the mortgage owed to the Pioneer State Bank! This year, in particular, with fundraisers and other events being cancelled, we are so grateful. Earlville is a great place to live, and we hope that our Museum continues to reflect that!
