Cass County Historical Society Annual Meeting
Cass County Historical Society held its Annual Meeting November 5 at the Murray Christian Church.
An election of board members was held during the business meeting. Officers elected to one year terms were: Roger Wehrbein, President; Del Hervey, Vice President;
Pat Meisinger, Secretary; and Alicia Garbers, Treasurer. Elected to the board with terms expiring in 2023 were Sandra Allgeier, Brad Ksiazek and Mel Luetchens.
During the meeting, Bryan Zimmer, board member for History Nebraska, presented Susan Rice with a “Heritage Hero” award. The award recognizes the work of grassroots history volunteers statewide. Mrs. Rice was nominated last year by the Cass County Historical Society Board of Directors for her long service as a board member, helping with school tours, working as receptionist, helping with special events and starting a project to place historic markers where every country school once stood.
The evening closed with a program “Winning the Vote: The Campaign for Women's Suffrage in the United States” presented by Dr. Dianne Bystrom. The program was offered through the Humanities Nebraska Speakers Bureau.
