Announcements and Reminders

Pat Rongey endured the 90°+ temperature at the Power of Florence this weekend to tend Power of Florencethe SGS table. She collected used toner cartridges and small electronics for the SGS Recycle Program while distributing genealogy information. A family who had picked up a family tree form from the SGS booth at the Green Fair in May, dropped by to let her know they filled it out with their family data!

Mike Allen shared a story at last week’s SGS monthly meeting regarding 2 sets of twins who were switched at birth. Read the NY Times article or see the CNN video HERE.  Mike has also become a Researcher in the Siuslaw Room at the library on Fridays, 10 a.m. to noon.  Other Researchers are Pat Rongey – Tuesdays, 1 p.m to 3 p.m. and Pat Ness – Sundays, 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.  Thanks go out to the Researchers for volunteering their time and efforts in assisting others with researching their family history.

Thank you to everyone who signed up to be on Committees and added their names to the meeting Refreshments list. View the new Committee list HERE.  A Holiday Party Committee is still needed – sign up!  If you haven’t already put your name on the Refreshment List, (or forgot which month you signed up for) view the list HERE. Two volunteers are needed to provide refreshments for each meeting.  We appreciate your participation!
