JEFFERSON, Iowa, Dec. 2, 2017 — The nominees for 2018 officers and members of the board of directors of the Greene County Historical Society were approved by unanimous acclimation of the membership on Friday, Dec. 1, when the organization had its annual business meeting at the Greenewood Center here.
Serving as president for a third year will be Dale Hanaman, of Rippey. Other officers elected are Nancy Hanaman, of Rippey, vice-president and program director; Joyce Ausberger, of Jefferson, secretary; Becki Cunningham, of Paton, treasurer, and Ces Brunow, of Jefferson, as past-president. The executive director Roger Aegerter, of Jefferson, is a hired employee, not an elected official, and he will continue in his position.
Two new members of the board of directors were elected — former secretary Margaret Hamilton, of Jefferson, and Cindy Deal, of Jefferson. They will join the following on the board: Nick Foster, of Jefferson; Carol John, of Jefferson; Dallas Schrader, of Jefferson; Paul White, of Churdan, and Chuck Offenburger, of Cooper.
The elected officers are also members of the board.
The “community contacts” for the historical society — the people who take RSVPs and other messages for the organization — are Dawn Rudolph, of Scranton; Janice Gilley, of Grand Junction; Marilynn Hoskinson, of Jefferson; Virginia Carlson, for Paton; Liz Guess, Churdan; Bette Molle, Cooper, and Mary Weaver, Rippey.
And here is the line-up for the 13 functioning committees that operate the society:
