Dalton museum to remain closed in spring

After great thought and deliberation, the president, officers and trustees of the Dalton Community Historical Society have decided to keep the museum campus closed for all activities, including monthly meetings.

With the current unpredictable medical situation and the advanced age of most of our members, it is felt that this is the best way to go.

Thanks to all those who have paid their dues for 2021. The officers will continue to work on projects for the year, like the calendar for 2022. However, at this time, our involvement with the strawberry festival has been given up for this year.

A decision will be made in June about the rest of the year. Currently some of us are working on keeping the acquisitions current, the society buildings cleaned up and some maintenance work done. We are currently working on getting estimates to get the black wrought iron fence repainted. We have also been involved in finding information for some people. If any members are interested in helping with anything, give Vickie a call and arrangements will be made. Or if you have any suggestions, please call. Just because the buildings are closed it doesn’t mean we’re not working.

Stay safe and hopefully we can get together later this year.

– Vickie Menges, president

    Someone said a museum in Dalton has old all-girl band uniforms and other high school memorabilia. the DHS class of 1972 will have a reunion in May-June 2022. Hoping if you have those items, you would be open to letting our alumni tour.
