preserve, honor and build upon the heritage of Kendallville Indiana.
On Monday, June 22, 2009, the Kendallville Heritage Association
was held at 6:00 p.m. in the Kendallville Public Library conference
room. In attendance were: Eric Daniels, Dave Christianson and
Minutes of the April meeting were approved as written.
Dave Christianson, Treasurer, gave the financial report. The
balance remains the same as reported in April. There have
been no expenses. Membership dues were collected from members
in attendance. Eric Daniels submitted a paid invoice for reimbursement. This covers the cost of
registering the domain for two years and two years of web hosting of
Mary Hartman was unable to attend tonight's meeting. Mary
sent her regrets to the group and the status report of the Russell
Frehse Collection with Becky Daniels to present to the
committee. Judy Richter has completed her inventory of the
collection. The next step will be to go through the materials
and determine logical groupings and classifications. We will
not begin to work on that until sometime in July..
Eric Daniels gave a status report on the KHA website. Eric
has set up the domain name, kendallvilleheritage.org with Imhosted.com
for 2 years. The first page has been created so we can begin
to get hits on search engines. Since we had some conflicts in
schedules with committee members, Eric will email a demo website to
committee members prior to the next meeting to view and offer
suggestions for content and appearance. At this time, Eric
has pages ready to add information with the headings of: timeline,
downtown history, homes, people, business, contacts, contributions
(financial or information) and the history of KHA. There was
a concern about copyright issues that we may run into by using
historical photos and written material on the website. Before
the next meeting, Becky Daniels will check into these copyright
The next meeting will be 6:00 p.m., Monday, July 27, 2009 at the
Kendallville Public Library, Meeting Rooms 1&2 .
