LionClub_Karin RettingerKaren Rettinger from the Marshall County Genealogy Resource Library presented an interesting and informative review of the services offered at the Resource Library.  They have card files with over 500,000 entries, over 22,000 photographs, people, places, maps, micro film of newspapers and more.  The research library is a caretaker of county public records; this includes a large collection of school records, estate and guardianship records, township records, county plats and military books.  Their mission is to encourage genealogical and historical importance; to assist researchers in finding their Marshall County families.

In other business it was noted that White Cane Day was a success.  Two requests for assistance were approved by the board and it was noted that dictionaries will soon be here and will be distributed to third grade students in five elementary schools.
