Upcoming Events

Next Meeting.  Join us on Monday evening, May 21, at 7:00p.  Planning for our Memorial Day event, calendar publication and other topics of interest to Byron history enthusiasts will be on the agenda.   

 

Get Involved! BHS has lots of fun activities for all our friends and members. 

  • 2019 Calendar:  Serving Up History – We are now collecting materials for next year’s calendar.  Food is both intimate and evocative and will, therefore, make a fascinating theme for 2019.  Please contact us with recipes, pictures of the cooks/dishes/kitchens, and stories about great meals from your family and past.
  • Byron Historical Community Exhibit for Memorial Day – We are planning a new community exhibit for Memorial Day around the theme of local government and, especially, given Memorial Day, those elected officials who also will be remembered as service members.  We want to hear from you with your ideas or items you are willing to lend or donate for display.
  • Veterans Memorial – Planting time is just around the corner. If you love to care for flowers, please consider joining a team in tending the garden at the Veterans Memorial.  This site was lovingly planted and maintained by Gloria Kelroy, and we plan to continue this tradition in Gloria’s memory and to honor our Town of Byron veterans. Contact us for more details.
  • 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, May 19, from 9:00 to noon.  Stop in and see us!
