Swift County Historical Society: Annual Meeting & Banquet

The May/June issue of The Echo, the newsletter of the Swift County Historical Society, arrived last week.  Marlys (executive director) writes:

The Swift County Historical Society’s Annual Meeting & Banquet will be held at the Hall in Clontarf on Monday evening, July 12.  Doors open at 6PM.  The meal will be served at 6:30PM.

A brief meeting with election of Board Members will be held after the meal. 

The society is excited to have Eileen & Aine McCormick (sic) as presenters for the evening’s program.  Eileen is a former curator of the Hill Family Papers at the James J. Hill Reference Library and current owner of Archival Solutions, an archival & historic research business.  Aine is a writer and family researcher.  The program will include the history of the Clontarf area and family history research activities.

Tickets to the Annual Meeting & Banquet may be purchased at the museum or from a Board Member.  Deadline to purchase tickets is July 1.  Cost per ticket is $12.

If you are going to be in the Clontarf area on July 12th, make sure you get your ticket!  Anne Schirmer (Board Member) emailed me yesterday and said she has tickets to sell.  If you know Anne, you know where to find her!  You can also get tickets at the Swift County Historical Society:

Should be a good evening and you can’t beat the speakers!  Don’t forget to get your ticket by Thursday, July 1st!

    Michael Johnson, 11, great grandson of Alice (Johnson) and “Pike” Chamberlain played piano before the dinner began. (Just a coincidence on the Johnson name. ) Alice & Pike’s youngest, DeAnn , married David Johnson Sept. 10, 1960. They celebrated their anniversary in August at the Hall in Clontarf. They had two sons. Tom married Tracy and Jim married Wendy. Michael is the son of Tom & Tracy.
