(Le Mars) — During last evening’s annual meeting of the Plymouth County Historical Museum, board president Wayne Schlotfeldt announced to the museum members the current combined account balances total more than $167,000.

The museum board president says the museum will, in the immediate future, focus on maintaining its building facilities.

Special awards of recognition were presented to Steve Collins, Iris Hemmingson, and Wayne Marty, who attended the museum’s annual meeting, along with Mary Reynolds, Linda Mayrose, and Rich Ziettlow for their part in writing the book of Le Mars history for the Sesquicentennial.
