MCHS Updates

August 6:

Summer continues to busy for everyone, the MCHS included!

We've got our monthly board meeting coming up this week, then the Fairmont High School Class of 1968 will be stopping by on Friday.

The following week is the Martin County Fair - while you are checking out the rides, games, animals, music, and (of course) the fair food stop by the Fairmont Chamber of Commerce booth that we are a part of and say Hi!

Monday, August 20th the Museum will be closed for a special staff workday. However, on August 21st - that Tuesday - it will be open again and at 2:00pm we will have a PowerPoint presentation on the history of the Martin County Fair.

The following Tuesday, August 28, we'll be showing another of our interesting Veteran's Interviews - our subject this month is Marv Talledge, area veteran who served with the US Army in Korea during the Cold War.
