The Union County Museum Society announces the organization will host their annual meeting Friday, October 11, at 7 p.m., in the Little White Church. Owned by the museum, the Little White Church is located across Main Street from the museum in Union. The featured speaker is Scott Schroeder.
A dedicated fan and student of local history, with special interest in high school sports, Scott Schroeder was born and raised in Union and attended grade school through high school there. He taught and coached at the high school for 23 years. During the second half of his career he taught US history and government. He has an interest in researching the history of Union schools with an emphasis on sports and activities, including researching school annuals and newspapers. He will also discuss the relationship between the museum and the school, including discarded materials.
During the annual meeting, Mr. Schroeder will tell stories about exceptional Union High School and other county sports teams and their achievements through the decades.
The annual meeting is free and open to the public. Just prior to the presentation, there will be a brief review of the museum season, presented by Sharon Hohstadt, Museum Society Board President, followed by recognition of volunteers, election of board members and a vote to accept the 2020 budget.
Please join us for a pleasant evening and the chance to get to know your museum and the people who work to compile, protect and present the history of Union County.
