“The Past is Always Present”

On October 27 we acquired the Jaycee Building next to the Heisey Museum. President JoAnn Bowes, Jaycees DuWayne Kunes and Marlin Russel, Pam and Steve Poorman and CCHS Board member Richard Morris all worked together for the advantages to both organizations.  The Jaycees can continue in their mission of public service and CCHS increases storage and meeting space.
