Guest Speaker. Join us at our next meeting on Monday, December 17, 2018, at the Town of Byron Town Hall (N3097 Highway 175, Byron, WI) for a fascinating presentation by Town of Byron entrepreneur, Curt Kindschuh— founder and owner of Drunk Busters of America, LLC. This wonderfully successful business, located in the Town of Byron, began in 1995, and its products are in use by police and other entities in 120 countries. You won’t want to miss this event which follows a short business meeting that begins at 7:00 p.m. Admission is free and open to the public.
Open House Success! Our annual fall open house, held November 10, is logged in as another great occasion for our members and guests. Our new exhibit and the 2019 commemorative calendars were unveiled. The theme, “Serving Up History,” showcases memories handed down through food and the fellowship of meals. Dishes mentioned in the calendar were re-created for the event allowing attendees to sample several delicious contributions. If you weren’t able to attend, please see other open dates below.
Get Involved! BHS has lots of fun activities for all our friends and members.

- Oral history project – The African proverb reminds us that when someone dies, a library has burned because his/her story is lost. We want to preserve the stories of our people through interviews. Please consider volunteering to meet with a member of our community to hear and record his/her stories. BHS will provide guidelines and a tape recorder. Contact us for more details.
