April 2021 Update

The Edinburg Historical Society held a board meeting in April.

On Saturday, May 1 at 9 a.m. EHS is looking for volunteers to help clean the floor of the Sandhill one-room schoolhouse and clean the schoolhouse garage. You do not have to be an EHS member to volunteer your time. Trucks and some muscle will be needed to transport some display cases from the school garage to the Rural Museum.

EHS would also like someone to volunteer their time to build book nook or “take a book/leave a book” that will be located at the Rural Museum located next to the Edinburg Volunteer Fire Company. Material costs will be reimbursed.

EHS will not be asking for any membership dues again this year, but a contribution would be appreciated. Current board members whose terms have expired have agreed to continue their duties until the end of the Covid restrictions when the membership is able to meet and vote on the candidates.

TWO SALAD AND BAKE SALES are scheduled for Saturday, May 29 and Saturday, July 10, both from 9 a.m. to noon to supplement the EHS income derived from our two Festivals that have been put on hold due to the Covid virus. EHS maintains two museums, the Copeland site, and the Sandhill one-room schoolhouse.

COPELAND COVERED BRIDGE SHARES have been purchased by Loren Fox in honor of Norma Fox and Donald Fox; and by Eric & Maureen Sweet in honor of Seward and Theresa Sweet and Bruce and Marjorie Hull. These shares help EHS raise funds for the restoration and maintenance of the Copeland Covered Bridge. Shares are $25 and the names of the recipients are posted at the Copeland Site.
