APOLOGIES


The Merrill Historical Society would like to apologize for missing a few names in our September Newsletter in the Memorial List for David Finanger. It was very touching to see all the people who donated to the Historical Society in Dave's memory. He will be missed very much by our organization and his family and friends.

Due to an oversight there are four names that should have been included on the Memorial Gifts: Marilyn & Gary Wright, Bob & JoAnn Opsahl, Marie Rein, and Bill & Marlene Krueger. These names will appear in the next Newsletter as well.

About


It all started in 1978 when…

a group of volunteers who enjoy learning about and studying the past got together. Whether it's Rangers or River Rats, floods or fires, milliners or millionaires, trolleys or trains, you'll find someone in the Society who is interested in researching these and many other topics using our extensive collection of documents, City Directories, high school yearbooks, family histories, and historical photos and postcards.
