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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Please keep sending your story in….
