The Hussar Historical Society is starting the next stage in getting our history book ready to print. We are starting to edit stories and get them saved under the right format. This means that we are still accepting stories even a little after our final due date. I know it seems like we may be saying this over and over again, but we want to make sure everyone gets their story in so we can make it up to date for everyone. Our e-mail address is hussarheritage@ gmail. com. Please keep sending your story in….

So if you can attend the casino, please let Pam Collett know. If you and your spouse want to work together, that would work great too!! This casino is called Kindergarten but it funds all of the special events that happen in our school. If you can spare some hours to help out, that would be appreciated.
