Monroe County Historical Society Reorganizes
The Monroe County Historical Society held a reorganizational meeting Thursday July 22 in Aberdeen at the old theater. They are now accepting new members. Dues are $10 for students, $12 for individuals, and $15 for couples. Dues may be mailed to Monroe County Historical Society, 30062 Sandhill Road, Aberdeen, MS 39730. (Please include your name, address, phone number, and email with your dues.) A date will be announced later for the next meeting which will take place in Amory, probably in October. Several committees were appointed to assist in the reorganization. The 1997 issue of Journal of Monroe County History of Mississippi is now at press. It is expected that two issues of the annual volume will be issued per year until the publication schedule is caught up. More information will be forthcoming!
