2019 Challenge Update
So far our “challenge” has been well supported. As of March 6th we have gained 38 new members! And we have received $ 2,485.00 in dues and donations that are eligible for a match from the Challenge Fund. Remember, our goal is 200 new members and the Challenge Fund is $ 5,000.00!

At its January meeting the BAHS Board of Directors decided to begin issuing a 1 page “Newsletter” containing details about events at the BAHS Museum Center and other information that our members may enjoy reading.

The “Extra” newsletter will be made available online at our website and will be emailed to you if you provide us with your email and ask us to do so. The “Extra” will be issued in the months that our traditional newsletter, “Rushcreek’s Derrick News” is not published. Remember, you only get the “Rushcreek’s Derrick News” if you are a member of the BAHS!

Opportunities for our New and not so new Members!
The BAHS is a volunteer operated organization. Please consider volunteering to serve as a Trustee or a docent for the museum. Volunteers are also needed to archive the artifacts that are donated to the museum. Our community events and fundraisers such as the Dinner-Theater, National Donut Day and Antique Tractor show require volunteers for all kinds of jobs from stuffing envelopes to greeting people and fixing and serving food. Please call Terry Borah at 740-438-9211 or email the office at BAHS43107@gmail.com to let us know how you would like to help.

George Washington
Thank you to everyone who supported the program on February 24th. And a special thanks to the students in the classrooms of Ms. Kostiuk, Ms. Barr, Ms. Freeland, Ms. Neal and Ms. Allen at Bremen Elementary School. They provided art work for display during the event. Their teachers each received a Hobby Lobby gift card to use for classroom supplies.
