The overall goal for 2013 could be to put to rest some of the agenda items that keep
coming up for months and years. e.g., Cora's cookbook. Perhaps some agenda items should
be addressed only every 3 or 4 months, because in fact no one is really doing anything with
- History of the stone house and fence on the SE corner of 44th and Eastern.
The GR Press archives might have a photo. Maybe Ray B.
- Cemetery walk. Brochure and labeled graves needed.
- Cora's recipe book.
- Fundraiser - a lot was learned from the last one, and they do have potential.
- Presentations? Maybe talk about some issues now and then, and see if interested
persons in the area have anything to contribute.
- Interns for research on specific topics, like the stone house and fence.
This would include trips to the GR Library to find articles and photos.
- Get as much of the KHPC's material online as possible. Bob will work with Gerry
and others to do this. More people need to learn to scan material so it can be sent to
others via e-mail for cooperative work. Same with digital cameras.
- Oral histories - continue as before.
- Photographs and other material - an ongoing issue. Ray B. still has lots of
slides. The problems remains how to get the word out, which in itself is a project.
Someone needs to specifically see whether the little local rags will publish an appeal
for photos. Whether postings in appropriate places will produce anything. We've talked
a lot about all this, but when the weather improves, maybe someone wants to get out and
see what happens.
- Photographs of extant old farm houses in the Kentwood area. Check plat maps for
approximate locations, then look for house with granite block foundations, a relatively
good indication that the house was built in 1900 or before.
