The slow-moving pace of the Stump Hotel restoration project, was a topic of discussion at the Calhoun Historical Society. About twenty members attended the meeting Thursday night at the location of the new Family History Center on Main Street. Discussion centered on how to move the project ahead, quickly.

Concerns about the organization having funds to pay utilities on the newly acquired structures, were set aside when local real estate agent Jim Morris offered to pay the bills for the next year. The group also voted to raise dues to $15 for next years memberships.

President Bob Bonar gave a report on the restoration of the Stevens School at Calhoun County Park. He said the entire building had now been caulked and was ready for painting.

The Acquisition Committee was activated to set guidelines on what materials or objects will be accepted for placement in the Family History Center or the Stump Hotel. Concerns have been expressed regarding the limited amount of space.

The Society acknowledged the donation of the Martha Hall Collection by the Hall family of Sand Ridge.

A gun raffle on a Remington series 710 30-06 is being conducted as a fund raiser, with tickets being sold for $1.

A micro-fiche reader was donated to the Wirt County Library.

The Society made a decision to have future meetings at the center on Main Street.
