Monthly Meeting - February 17, 2009

The regular monthly meeting of the Cambridge Historical Association was held Tuesday, February 17, 2009. Among the items discussed were:
  • Preparing a list of veterans in the Cambridge cemeteries for Memorial Day honors. We are using the lists of veterans in our book: Cambridge, Iowa The First 150 Years as the starting point. Cemetery records and our collection of obituaries are being combined with the lists. If you have additional sources or know others that should be included, please let us know.
  • Preparation of a display for Jubilee Days, which is the second weekend in June. The theme will be Cambridge Area Schools with much of it coming from our book: Cambridge, Iowa 150 Years of Education in Cambridge and Union Township, Story County, Iowa.
  • Designing a sign for the Heart of Iowa Nature Trail being constructed south of Cambridge.
  • Thank you for the donation of historic items from John Kalsem and Dorothy Hynd.
The next regular meeting was scheduled for March 17th, later postponed to Tuesday, March 24th at 7 p.m. It will be held at the Cambridge Historical Association headquarters, 209 Water Street.
