A Note from our President:

Dear ACAGS Members,

Our January meeting will be January 17 at 1:30. It will be a work day. You can do your research or you can clip or paste newspaper articles for ACAGS. We may also be moving some furniture.  Our February meeting will be February 21. George Craddock is working on a program about The Klondike Gold Rush and the Audrain County men who dared to go.  Hope to see you at a meeting. If you have any ideas for programs, send me an email at
