“We don’t want our Holmes County Historical Society die on the vine,” said Williams. “I know there’s people out there who are willing and wanting to support their history. It’s our roots and our history we’re trying to protect and we appreciate all the support we can get.”

According to the minutes of the previous meeting held Thursday, Nov. 8, President Lois Cypher called the meeting to order at 4:05 p.m.

After the minutes were read, Tardif noted that the money in the bank as reads, $278.03 should read $268.03 and it was approved.

Member Sue Williams said that Buford Williams had sent his letter on improving our membership to the editor of the Holmes County Times-Advertiser but did not know if it had been printed as of that date.

Bevan said he was still working on “Dr. Paul’s contribution to our community” and plans to search for further information in the local library. He also reported that he cleaned the grave of George Banfill, founder of Bonifay.

They decided to hold their Christmas Party and regularly scheduled membership meeting on Saturday, Dec. 15.

The next regularly scheduled meeting of the Holmes County Historical Society will be held at 4 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 8.
