Jasper County Historical Society to meet Sunday

The Jasper County Historical Society will have its annual meeting at 2 p.m. Sunday at the Jasper County Museum.

Members and the public are welcome to attend the free event.  The museum is located at the intersection of Highway 14 and I-80.  

Following a short business meeting, a reader’s theater group, the Jasper Anecdocents, will provide the program. Anecdotes are short and amusing or interesting stories about real incidents or people. Docents are people who act as guides, typically on a voluntary basis, in a museum, art gallery or zoo. The two words were combined to create the group’s name. 

The mission of the Jasper Anecdocents is to tell Jasper County history through delightful stories found in letters, diaries, memoirs, scrapbooks, obituaries and newspaper articles. The hope is that the audience  will be inspired to pause to record the stories important to them in hopes that someday the stories may be passed on to families, friends and neighbors.
