HISTORICAL SOCIETY: There have been 28 visitors to the Pioneer Museum the first 3 weekends of June. Mrs. Beglinger asked where the records of Marion Underwood, a previous Fabius Town Historian, would be. Mr. Schlicht said he had them at one point then gave them to Edna Skeele. Mrs. Skeele cannot remember what happened to them. This was during a time there was no central town hall and records were kept at individuals’ homes.

Community Center:
● The Town Board would like to express its appreciation to Mrs. Denise Johnson for obtaining the grant that made it possible to get the beautiful hard wood floors placed in the courtroom.
● Mr. George Davenport held a Paint Night at the Community Center earlier this month to raise money to replace the stained glass in the cloverleaf window. He raised $1,485. Many thanks to Mr. Davenport for his time and energy.

Keyless Entry: It is apparent that people have been letting themselves into the courtroom without reserving the room, sometimes leaving food and garbage on the tables and on the Judge’s bench.
