Members of the Hurd and Jackson family visited the Hurd House and the barn at the Elma Museum Complex. Pictured are Jim Hurd of Syracuse and David Jackson of Montana holding a crazy quilt that they donated to the museum. The quilt was made by Dulcina Hurd ca 1890 and is in excellent condition. Mr. Hurd also brought two drawings of the original way the mill race, next to the sawmill, looked in the 1840s.
Kudos to Town of Elma employees for refurbishing the advertising sign at the front of Elma Village Green Park and in front of Hurd House Museum. The sign is used to advertise events by the Town of Elma, the Elma Seniors, and the Elma Historical Society. By the way, town employees support the Elma Historical Society in many ways. We couldn't do all that we do without their support and dedication. We appreciate their support.
Our Annual Spring Tea was a great success. The food was delicious and our fashion show was lots of fun. A special thanks to our fabulous models. They did a super job. Thank you to everyone who attended. Thanks also to all that helped prepare and serve the food. Lastly the tea could not have taken place without the help of the "Thursday Girls." They worked for weeks setting up the tables and dishes and arranging the displays in the house. Hope we can do it again next year.

The new historical marker up close. Thanks go to Town Of Elma employees who installed the marker. They make things happen in our town, and we seldom notice because they just get things done without fanfare.
