Historical Society meeting scheduled

Sunday, November 23, 2008

The Clay County Historical Society will meet Dec. 1, at 7 p.m., in the lower level of the museum.

The special guest speaker will be Harley Sheets from Danville.

Sheets is the President of the Indianapolis Postcard Club and collector of old postcards. He is also the founder of the Indiana High School Basketball Historical Society.

He is working to obtain a postcard of every high school (former and present) in the state.

Those interested in attending are urged to bring old postcards to the meeting.

The society also still has a few of the Clay County afghans available for sale. They are available for purchase Monday-Friday, from 1-4 pm.

For more information, call 443-1844.

Refrain from obscenity in your comments, and to keep discussions civil, don't say anything in a way your grandmother would be ashamed to read.

Perhaps the Society could discuss more important matters such as saving the historical fabric of the community such as the hospital and other important landmarks. Historical architecture shapes and forms how a community views itself. Brazil is just going down the drain with the replacements of hideous buildings such as CVS (that now marks the heart of town). YUCK!!!! There are so many beautiful buildings that need to be restored and savored. Please find this to be on the top out your list of importance. Bring this dying community together again with a vibrant esthetically pleasing downtown that Brazil is SO in need of.
