Important Message Regarding Bollinger Co., MO Archives

County Commissioners are taking over the Archives and are forcing out the Volunteers who started and maintained the Archives for the last 6 years or more. This group of volunteers started this archives with $14.00 and have worked extremely hard to bring it to the wonderful research facility that it is today. The Archive volunteers were finally able to sell enough books and copies and get enough donations to have $5,100.00 in the bank. The commissioners took that away from them the other day. The commissioners have proposed to PAY the people who work next door in the Extension office to oversee the Archives to the tune of $1,000.00 per year. This job was being done quite well by the volunteers for no pay. The volunteers need your help. Please write the commissioners and let them know how you feel.
