Historical Committee seeks items
The local Historical Committee would like to ask the citizens of Alhambra and surrounding communities to please watch for items that could possibly have some historical significance to future generations. Many times a letter, postcard, receipt or sale bill from a past business may help someone to remember the past. When cleaning out drawers, basement, attics and garages, please remember the historical society. . Contact Kenny Gehrig 488-2425 if you would like to donate anything. Nothing is too insignificant.
