Quarterly Newsletters

4th Quarter 2015, Issue No. 14

We hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and we wish you a very Happy New Year. The Society met twice since the last issue.

Membership Dues – Dues are due. Our dues run from January to December. I’ll be sending out another reminder with the President’s year end letter shortly. We are ending the year with 115 households. Your support is very important to us and we appreciate each of you.

Desk Donation – One of our near-term goals has been to set up
one of the rooms in the Goldfield High School as a period class
room. To this end, we were in search of old- time school desks.
One of our members recommended contacting the Fourth Ward School Museum in Virginia City, NV. As it turned out, they did indeed have desks. After a couple of phone calls, they called back and said they were willing to donate 30 school desks to the Goldfield High School! We are absolutely overwhelmed by their generosity. Richard & Edie Koepnick have taken the lead on arranging the transportation of the desks from Virginia City.
We hope to have them here in Goldfield early next year.
