Do you have an article that you want to be included in the 2014 HSHC Yearbook? If so, you need to get it to us by July 31st. We do not have a theme, as we think a variety of articles on different subjects has something for everyone. So, if you still want to submit your article to us, it needs to be about Hopkins County…people, places, events, etc. We prefer a hardcopy on paper and then a CD or flash drive, or just e-mail it. Call the musem 270-821-3986 for more information. Summer Hours are 1-5 pm M-F.
