A Message from the Board of Directors

The Seymour Community Historical Society is experiencing a challenging 2020. We are all volunteers and our common interest in preserving local history brings us together. One of the most rewarding experiences as board member's is planning and promoting a variety of programs for our members and other interested parties. We are also proud of our beautiful museum and enjoy the opportunity to make it available to visitors. Unfortunately, because of COVID-19 the board had to cancel all our programs and keep the museum closed. To better understand the situation it is important to realize that the majority of our board members are senior citizens as are many of our volunteers who supervise the museum.
For the first time in almost fifteen years the gazebo was quiet on Wednesday evenings. Several pages in this publication will remind you of the good times at Music in the Park. Your society planned to host a Model A club accompanied by a jazz band and ice cream social. The museum was all set to feature a German exhibit on loan from the University of Wisconsin. All of us were excited about highly acclaimed sports anchor, author and speaker Joe Schmit returning to his roots for a presentation. An agreement was reached with Mary Pat VanSchyndl, a gifted quilter, to display her creations at the annual museum art show. Prudence and concern for the health of everyone dictates the popular Kids' Christmas has to be postponed. These programs and more will be back in 2021. Thanks to generous donors, numerous volunteers and the support of the Seymour City Council your historical society remains financially sound.
This edition of the Seymour History Bulletin highlights a look back at enjoyable times at Music in the Park, recent additions to the museum, the early years of the city and basketball at St. John's Grade School.
