      I am the recording secretary for the Westfield Area Historical Society and my wife is the treasurer. The society purchased a building on main street in 2005 and we are in the process of making a local museum. It was an old building and needed many repairs. We are getting closer to opening and plan to have a least a couple of exhibits ready for the annual Westfield Days celebration to be held on August 3,4, and 5th.
     We would more than welcome any help from you that you are willing to give. Our membership per year cost $5. and a lifetime membership is $50. If it is your desire to be a member you can send the money to my address. Our meetings are held the 3rd Wednesday of the month and for July the date is the 18th at 7pm at our building 151 W. Main Street.
