Hopkins Historical Society Seeks Volunteers, Members

The Hopkins Historical Society is seeking volunteers as well as members. They operate the Hopkins Historical Society & Museum Building, located next door to the Hopkins Bar & Grill. Hours this year will be from 1 to 3 every Tuesday starting in May and running through the end of October. There are copies of old Hopkins Journals, memorabilia, models of old cars, and historical information about the town.

The building is staffed on a volunteer basis. To volunteer, contact President Jim Cline at (660) 254-3711. To join, send annual dues of $10/year to Lois Brand, 29370 140th Street, Hopkins, MO 64461.

The society held its annual meeting last Tuesday night. They will run a booth at the Hopkins Picnic this summer to raise funds for the building. Proceeds will go to defray operating costs and building upkeep. Work is needed on the south wall so it won't leak. A cleanup day was scheduled for the afternoon of April 28th, in advance of the opening of the building.
