The Boundary County Historical Society would like to thank the community for a successful fundraiser on Saturday, Oct. 27. $1,043 was raised and will be used toward the museum’s new entrance which will face the Visitor Center. Plans are under way to begin construction as early as possible in the spring.

Silent auction and raffle Items were provided by Hibernia, Under the Sun, Boundary Trading Company, Kootenai River Inn, The Gallery, Shell, Rose Colored Attic, Larson’s, Kootenai Valley Motel, South Hill Furniture, Boardwalk Boutique, Nancy Affleck, Darrell and Patti Kerby, Jean Mace, Bert Wolff and Carol Jean Hubbard. We would like to give a special thanks to the businesses and individuals who made our Funky Fall Fundraiser a success with donated goods and purchases.

If you missed the fundraiser, the remaining yard sale items will be available for purchase at the Pack Rat Sale at the Fairgrounds Nov. 9-10. Proceeds from items initialed BCM will benefit the museum project.

The Boundary County Historical Society has ordered a reprint of Volume 1 of The History of Boundary County. A county cookbook is also in the works. Both books will be available for the holidays at the Christmas Craft Fair at the Fairgrounds Nov 30-Dec. 1.

The next meeting of the Boundary County Historical Society is Nov. 14 at 7 p.m. in the south wing of the museum (formerly Boundary Computer Solutions). Anyone interested in learning and preserving the history of the county is encouraged to participate.
