Marion County Historical Society to meet Tuesday

The board of directors of Marion County Historical Society will review a draft constitution and bylaws at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at Harvey House in Florence.

President Peggy Blackman said the board would discuss applying for tax-exempt charitable status after it is fully organized. Although the organization will be independent, county counselor Susan Robson will assist with applying.

Anyone interested in promoting and preserving Marion County history is encouraged to attend. Any resident of Marion County is eligible to be a member.

“We are going to need a lot of members at the beginning to have success with any project,” former president Mary Olson said.
