History preservation video project

One of the long-term goals of the Society has been to preserve the County's history through multimedia, specifically videotapes. The current leadership has renewed this project approved by previous boards and, today, Society members and leaders are actively moving forward with the project. Several lifetime citizens in McDonald County have been contacted and are recording historical memories and the tapes for this project are now in production.

Any persons who are interested in preserving their memories of McDonald County or who know lifetime residents of the County whose contributions would be invaluable to the Society are invited and encouraged to contact The Society. Anyone interested in participating in this important project is also invited to contact the Society.
