Trella Hemmerly – 1989-11-09

Thursday, November 9, 1989
Ralph Hedges finished papering kitchen. I gathered up things for Salvation Army including Ray’s ping pong table, four chairs, electric grill, ironing board, hair dryer etc. But they didn’t come to pick them up. I left at 1:00 for Heritage Hall to meet Gary Barnhart in archives. He is sorting newspaper collection to shelves. 2:00 press conference with release of Heritage Hall brick and sponsor program for transformation fund. 3:00 met Kathleen Haldeman at Recorder’s Office to research ownership of Lippincott house her daughter bought. Hap Dowler helped her when I got stuck.
4:45 p.m. met Mary at Ponderosa for steak. Then to her house to select books I wanted from her attic collection- Rocky had good taste. Then she gave me book containing uncle Jim’s account of trip to Florida in 1911 and Forest’s trip in 1913 when he was 13. Another family treasure.
