Help money was $217.00

At that point in the meeting Commander Sulger asked the ladies to join us and he thanked them for a great job on the Christmas Party.



It was again mentioned that we need help at the Open House.  It is difficult to be in the Museum with someone and try to answer the door at the same time.



Joe long brought to the Camp’s attention to an item donated to the camp by Nick Petula; a picture frame with a photo of Lincoln in the center and period post cards around it. Commander Sulger suggested a thank you letter be sent to him by the Secretary.  Joe Long has the contact information.


Frost Decker brought in information about the Shawnee Cemetery in Plymouth.  It is in bad condition and they are trying to clean it up and have a program called adopt a grave for $25.00.  A collection was taken up and two graves will be adopted.


The April Open House has been moved to the 14th because it was on the same day as the Appomattox Luncheon.


No official Installation of Officers Ceremony was held because all Officers remain the same.


Ray Sulger mentioned that on the weekend of June 8, 9, & 10 the SVR will be hosting the Confederation of Union Generals with several events planned. They have requested a tour of the museum on Sunday at 1:00 PM.  Brother Sulger asked the other members of the board for the ok. Joe Long had the vote postponed until the next meeting.


With no further business the meeting was closed.
