Help! Bob Bean Retired from the Dean House!
Bob Bean turned 80 on March 30th (Happy Birthday, Bob!). For several years he has been saying he was going to retire from the Dean House when he turned 80. Well, he's as good as his word - but - where does that leave the Dean House ?
Bob has been doing many different chores aroumd the house i.e. small repairs; installing / uninstalling screens, storms, air conditioner; painting; putting up / taking down banners, flags & sign for Second Sunday Open House; snow shoveling; policing the grounds, etc.
Now we need to find other people to perform these and other tasks. Garry Hess has been a great help to Bob but he can't do these things alone. Can you lend a hand ?
We usually work at the Dean House on Monday mornings but if this time is not convenient for you - let us know and we'll find another time to work together. Please call president Gloria Simley 222-3859 or curator Ann Waidelich 249-7920 with your offer to help.
Thank You, Very Much

Cataloging the Collection
Gloria Simley, Judith Bodden and Ann Waidelich spent Monday mornings in March cataloging clothing items. They have also been entering information into PastPerfect about the historic photographs that have been donated to the HBGHS. If you are interested in helping with this ongoing project, please call Ann Waidelich 249-7920.Remembering Marge Elliott
