Thank you Meadows Valley Benefit Golf Tournament aka “The Fosdick” for your award of $4,800 toward the cost of insulating the Freight Room Auditorium attic space.  Your continued support of the Adams County Historical Society has allowed us to finish the restoration of the beautiful first floor windows and put a new vinyl floor down in the Freight Room Auditorium.  Your all volunteer organization that raises funds for a variety of non-profits, school programs and college scholarships has added so much to the quality of life of this Valley.
