A ribbon cutting ceremony was held last Thursday at 6 p.m. for the re-opening of the Family History Center.

Sponsored by Calhoun County Historical and Genealogical Society, the ribbon cutting was done by a handful of people who had put in time and energy to get the center ready for the Wood Festival.

Present were Roger Jarvis, Steve Whited, Terry Harris, Maricia Mlynek, Andrew Mlynek, Bill Gherke, Larry Whited and Chad Barnes. The blessing was given by pastor Scotty Robertson, and Society president Bob Bonar spoke to the group.

The History Center was open throughout the festival, giving many a chance to browse about the displays and to absorb some local history.

Plans for continued upkeep and renovation of the facility are ongoing. In the future, the Society hopes to have a new sign and some exterior work completed.

A wooden box replicating Stump Hotel, made by Jim Bell (right) and painted by Charlie Whipkey, was delivered to Family History Center last Thursday in time for opening ceremonies. It will be available to collect donations.

Purpose of the Family History Center is to preserve the county’s history and heritage.

The next meeting of Calhoun Historical Society will be on Thursday, June 10, at 6 p.m. All are invited to attend.

Evelyn and Jim McCormick presented handkerchief apron made by Cintilla Stump, who resided in the Stump Hotel. This was made around 1950 and donated by Evelyn's sister, Eva.
