Kudos to Chris and Carrie Kaseberg and their entire crew … Gail Macnab, Jonathan and Kalie Rolfe and the Sherman County Historical Society sponsors for the fundraising gala on the 14th.

Thank you, everyone! ~Dorothy Benson, Moro

THANK YOU! The Sherman County Historical Society would like to send out a BIG thank you to all the individuals and businesses that supported “A Night at the Museum” on Saturday, Sept. 14. We could not have asked for a better evening, as the weather was perfect, the food was excellent, the beer and wine were tasty and the venues were great! Thank you also to everyone who donated to the silent and oral auctions and to those who bid on the amazing items. Proceeds from this fundraiser will go towards the continual upkeep of the museum. Again, thank you from the fundraiser committee and the Sherman County Historical Society. 

Appreciation can make a day – even change a life. Your willingness to put it into words is all that is necessary. ~Margaret Cousins
