Next Meeting. Join us on Monday evening, October 15, at 7:00p.m. (6:30p.m. if you have anything you would like to loan or donate to our collection) at the Town of Byron Town Hall, N3097 Highway 175, Byron WI 53006.
Guest Speaker. At our October 15 meeting, William Kraus, Pet Therapist for Sassu Enterprises, presents his experiences with 4-legged friends who serve our community in unique and wonderful ways.
Plan Ahead. Our fall Open House date is now set for Saturday, November 10, from 9:00a.m. to 3:00p. m. Our new exhibit, following the 2019 Commemorative Calendar theme “Serving Up History,” will showcase the meals, recipes and memories of our contributors. Samples of delicious foods will be available to attendees, and there will be a short program at noon.
Get Involved! BHS has lots of fun activities for all our friends and members.
- Byron Historical Community Exhibit – We have a new community exhibit which was unveiled on Memorial Day around the theme of local government and, especially, given Memorial Day, those elected officials who also will be remembered as service members. Please come and see it when you can (N3097 Highway 175, Byron WI 53006). We are open from 9:00-noon every Saturday before the monthly meetings. Our next Saturday opening will be October 13. We are also available at other times by appointment. Please email us ([email protected]) or call 920 922 5351 or 920 960 4591 to schedule.
- 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.
Open. BHS members will be on site at the Town of Byron Town Hall for those wishing to purchase 2018 commemorative calendars and view the current exhibit: Saturday, October 13, from 9:00 to noon. Stop in and see us (N3097 Highway 175, Byron WI 53006)!
