President's Message




    There are big happenings at the museum to report!  Minimal work remains to be done on the interior of the old Community Building and the museum is partially moved.  Finley River Gallery, with whom we will share the building, is completely installed and open for business there.  Most of the museum items are in the new building, although arranging, unpacking and labeling have barely begun.  We had planned an open house on August 8 in conjunction with the City of Ozark's block party on the square, but that event was rained (actually thunder-stormed) out.  The block party is rescheduled for September 9, so we will have our open house then.  Also a great deal of work remains to be done in the new location and the old museum, but an open house will give people a chance to see the completed work on the building and visit Finley River Gallery.  Later this fall, once the museum exhibits are completely in place, we will have a grand opening - watch for announcement! 


    On a different note, Shirley Stewart, who has edited this publication for the last seventeen years, has tendered her resignation.  Shirley, a published author in her own right, has done a fabulous job, one of which both she and the society can be proud.  Often with very few submissions, she has unfailingly produced an interesting and high quality quarterly.  We are sorry to see her go, but she has left her mark on the society and for that we will always be grateful.


    Our next meeting will be at 2:00 p.m. on September 10, the first one held in the new museum.  Rather than a program, we will have time to look around the building and browse the art gallery.  We hope to see you there.
