Atwater Historical Members give the museum a nice clean house!
Here are some photos of the fun had before our July meeting. Please forgive me as I am not familiar with all the faces as of yet. I am still a newbie member…
I am truly sorry I did not get more photos.. So many members and everyone was cleaning up a storm. I had to stay away from Alexandria – she was taking the green headed doo dad to the spiders in the corners! :O)
Atwater Historical Society food drive a success!
