The Hilda Hoffmann Memorial Archive Inc. will be holding its second meeting on August 13th, 2pm at 301 Williams Ave., Picayune, MS. On the agenda will be the selection of four new Board Members and a presentation by Marco Giardano, Chief Scientist and Archeologist at Stennis Space Center.
The meeting is open and we have invited all who are interested in Pearl River County History. Refreshments will be served after the formal meeting ends. We hope to be meeting monthly and will have the required General Membership Meeting early next year to formally approve the existing by-laws and board members.
Dear Member, 6/13/2011
We will be holding our first membership get together on Saturday, June 18th, 4-7pm, at 301 Williams Avenue, Picayune, MS. Please try to make it as we will be passing on important information about the Archive and its future.
Gracious thanks for all of you who have joined with us to preserve Hilda’s archive. As of 3/1 we have 43 members and hope by the end of the year to increase this to 200. The archives are in a safe climate controlled space in Hancock County where we are in the process of organizing the files. Currently we are working on the surnames and hopefully will finish this in the next several months. Next we will begin to scan those documents and put them on CD’s which will be available to the public for a small fee.
