Projects that allow us to connect with or give back to our community, such as, but not limited to:

  • Free genealogy workshops - 1 or 2 per year.
  • Books or microfilm donated to the Hutchinson Public Library.
  • Headstone for an unmarked grave.
  • Purchasing cemetery name signs
    • 17 planned [2 complete, 13 ordered, 2 pending as of 4/7/11]
    • Antioch & Hazen cemeteries were the first two signs purchased.
  • Displays & exhibits - Kansas Room display case with rotating family items. Previous photo exhibit titled "Faces & Places of Reno County" [2009], celebrating family history month
  • Genealogy & Cemetery combined brochure - 1st one created for Eastside Cemetery. Placed on sight in time for Memorial Day weekend 2009

If you have an idea for a project we'd love to hear about it!
