Our first website design, which included picture scanning and preparation of pictures still used here was done by Leslie Sittner, former curator, to whom we are grateful for years of dedicated and tireless effort. The various illustrations on this site are by former trustee Bob Stangle. Many thanks to former secretaries Gail Collins and Norma Porteus, former trustee Donna Robinson, former co-presidents Kathy Hoff and Marilyn Sargent, and former trustee Paul Fernhout (trustee 2009-2020). There have been many other people who have helped the society in the past and currently; thank you of much for everything you have done!
