We could still use people to help host. Once a month or once in a while would be helpful. Choose a Monday, Wednesday, or Friday from 6:30am-10:00am. Ask a friend to help and share the duties.
Thanks so much to those who already volunteer.

Your donations to our Coffee Shop, Bake Sales, and Holiday Desserts support our efforts to maintain the Clemons House and Historical Hall for many generations to come.
A special 'thank you' to the Coggon LIons Club for their very generous donation to our Clemons House roof fund. With their help and a grant from Linn County Historic Preservation Commision, we have had the roof issues addressed and some much needed gutter work done as well!
