Volume 18, Issue 3
From Doris West
July - September 2016
We recently received a letter from Norene Craddick in Georgia, saying, "I am also enclosing a check in the amount of $150, to make up the difference between the $100 life membership I have had for several years, and the current amount that I just noticed in the latest Randolph Times! I am so pleased to see the great strides you all are making in this wonderful organization. Thank you!"
Thank you, Ms. Craddick, for being so generous and putting a great value on our volunteer efforts. Let's use that $150 as SEED MONEY towards the effort to "burn" our mortgage this year. As a lifetime member who got in under the wire (while the price was still $100) here's my check, Mr. Treasurer, for $150. Cha Ching!
There are many ways to support your RTHS organization in addition to money. One person clips and files obituaries of people connected to our area. One calls local members to remind them of meetings. Some water the flowers outside the building. One photographs buildings being built or demolished. Even telling others about our collection and inviting them to visit is a great help. We need volunteers at the building for two hours on a Sunday afternoon, even if you can only help once a year, so visitors can come. We need someone to record oral history interviews of long-time residents. (We provide the tape recorder and questions to ask.) Or, if you have a recorder, turn it on and tell us your memories of this area and send it to us, or write them out, if you prefer. If you have other ideas of how to help, come to our next meeting and tell us.
