The Sherman County Historical Society (SCHS) received $4,500 in a matching grant from the Sherman County Community Foundation. The grant monies were used to remodel the overhead door in the Elsner Building, repair the foundation of the Hawk School, and repair a door in the Austin School Building. Matching funds were raised through donations, museum tours, book sales, Polish Days Ice Cream Social, 4th of July garage sales, and of course Junk Jaunt.

SCHS would not be able to do any of the work they accomplish without their members and many volunteers. We continue to look forward to 2022 with great hope and anticipation.
