Presidents Letter November 2012
Sorry your newsletter is late but I am not feeling so well. Our family seems to be passing the flue around. Jennifer and Drew are still not fully recovered after almost a week. Rather than pass the bug around I am cancelling the November meeting. In December we will not be having a monthly meeting due to the holidays. We will be having a Tea the First Thursday in December (Dec 6th) at 1:30 in the Library. Hope to see you there.
Much has been written regarding the settling of Wood County. Early settlers were lured to the area because of the rich farmland and still today agriculture is a significant part of the local economy. Farming is not an easy occupation but the farmers in the area did quite well. I have heard stories of city dwellers without work and means of support moving in with their families here in the area as their farmer relatives always seemed to have food. The photos I have included with this months newsletter are of farmers working. As I have shared before the photos of people working are not very common, we are fortunate to have them in our collection.
