The annual meeting of the Elk Township Historical Society will be held Thursday, Sept. 6, at the former Scandia School. All members of the organization are encouraged to attend, and the public is welcome. Light refreshments will be served at 6:30 p.m. in the community rooms. A short business meeting will follow at 7 p.m. to announce the new board members and officers. Reports will be given by each committee chair presenting the accomplishments from the past year.
Following the meeting, Scandia resident Don Sharp, a.k.a. "Cornplanter," will give a talk about the Native American culture in this area. Elk Township was and is a melting pot for many nationalities and cultures of people, and Native Americans played a vital role in that history.
The photos from the 2012 amateur photography contest, "Images of Elk Township" remain on display, and attendees can vote for their favorites. People's choice awards in the six categories will be presented at the contest's closing gala on Saturday, Oct. 13, at 7 p.m.
If you haven't had the opportunity to visit the museum, you can do so. Any officer or board member can provide a tour. Elk Township Historical Society continues to preserve the past for future generations.
