The June speaker has been rescheduled for September. Look here for more information. We would like to take this time to ask the public what history and historic preservation related topics they would like to hear about as we schedule future speakers. Please e-mail or call us your thoughts, and also maybe some suggestions of speakers you might know that we can contact. We will not have a meeting in July, but will have an executive meeting in August to get ready for the fall schedule. Our next meeting after that will be September 7, 2023. Please keep in touch because we are still planning and working towards promotion and preservation of our local history.

Oh Humble volunteer, where can you be,
Selling hot dogs in the shade of a tree?
Perhaps attending a lecture at City Hall,
How can you possibly juggle it all?
There were rumors that you were seen at the Raid,
Handing out leaflets in the afternoon shade.
Baking cookies, or driving a tram,
Giving home tours, Looking 1800’s glam.
Setting up tables, as well as large tents,
Wrestling with brochures, not making a cent.
Why do you do it, why work so hard?
Is it for a framed certificate or ‘thank you” card?
Why teach history to those who don’t care?
It’s something that drives you to make them aware.
It’s not about money or fame or being smart,
It’s about reaching someone straight from you heart.
So when you see all over town,
Teaching & working, never being down,
We’ll point and say, “honey look over there,”
There goes Hernando’s Best Volunteer.
