Don Brenner says: Our next regular meeting will be on Monday, October 23rd at 4 PM at the library.
We recently added a new acquisition - a large 40" x 96" wooden panel with a decoupaged pen and ink drawing depicting a logging scene. It was donated to the Society by City Hall. It is hanging on the wall outside the History Room.
We also received a box of photos that a woman found in a house she bought in Winlock.
They are family photos taken in Seattle and Everett over 75+ years and sent to a relative.
I am trying to find out if there is a connection to Toledo.
Dale Dyer donated a photo of Lincoln School with classes from 1912 to be copied for the Society. That has been done and another copy was dropped off at the library.
Recently, our September meeting minutes were posted on our Facebook page.

Tech Report: On Technology Versus Old School
One of my original organizational newsletter favorites was - is - Unclutterer.com, a great resource for managing your stuff (and your life). As I read the comments following their recent post Backups Aren’t Just For Computers, I noted the first contributor outlined his own Plan B for various aspects of his world. The next opinions (hilariously) outlined the ways technology is overrated.
Here I seek to establish both views have merit - and reveal my own move to embrace technology:
Thanks to #SkiptheBS for pointing out a backup plan doesn't require a rant about technology (and BTW, I'm not reading this in traditional print).
Two instances of ID theft cost me my biz, my home and my health over a dozen years ago. Both involved paper - and cut locks. So I went paperless in 2005, thanks to technology.*
Today most ID theft occurs due to some megalithic agency getting hacked - you have no control over it, and it matters not one bit if you never touched a keyboard. Your info is out there, as is your parents’ and grandparents’ and brand new babes.
The article above focussed on two basic concerns: backups of important paper documents, and backups for critical technology.
In my own case, I have the first topic neatly covered in my blog post here.
As for the second topic, #SkiptheBS addressed alternate plans very neatly - batteries, spares, extras. Add boots, bottled water & pantry staples, and you’re ready to ride out most storms.

Last week’s update on Logan Grove’s heart condition triggered this post:
The Toledo High School Leadership Class is putting on this fundraiser in hopes to help out Logan!
Logan is a Class of 2018 student who learned last Spring he had a rare genetic heart disorder, and with persistence and prayers has responded favorably to treatment, though he will need surgery. More details on Facebook.
