With fingers crossed—and keeping a wary eye on the medical news front regarding COVID 19—the BHS Board of Directors made a decision to hold three membership events this year, including a summer meeting to tour the new Center for Missouri Studies-headquarters of the State Historical Society of Missouri on July 23, at 10:30 a.m. Staffer Maggie Mayhen will be our guide. Bob Priddy and/or Bill Clark may join us.
And our annual meeting and fall banquet on Sunday, November 6, at 6 p.m. at the historic Hotel Frederick in Boonville. The program will be a presentation of historic photos from Howard and Cooper Counties. Descriptions and notes will be provided by videographer/local historian Wayne Lammers and BHS President Jim Steele.
Previous board decisions to not hold membership gatherings during the past two years have had a measurable effect on membership retention and membership morale, both of which we truly hope to turn around by a return to a normal event schedule.
