Help Needed:

June:   The Evans Historical Society is in urgent need of a volunteer to record each speaker event every month, sometimes edit the movie, and place it on the new acquired EHS laptop for visitors and members alike to view during Museum hours of operation.  That person must also make sure the laptop and backup drives are up to date.  Please notify James Dinkuhn if interested at  The person also must be interested in the history of Evans, but have a fairly good understanding of computers.  I regularly use Open Office and Microsoft Movie Maker for editing.  We also prepare a data DVD for the speaker as a courtesy.

July:  Starting in this July, the Historical Society is looking for volunteers to assist manning the schoolhouse every weekend from 2pm-4pm.  We are also looking for help with restoration of Pioneer Cemetery.  Please contact any board member for information. 


2018 dues are as follows:  Individual $15  Family $20
