Saving History for Tomorrow

Winter Fund Raiser

Thelma's Chicken is a food truck out of Chariton. Everyone raves about her broasted chicken. Thelma is hosting this benefit for CAHS on Monday March 20th 4 to 6:30. We will be using the city owned (old bank) parking lot . Drive through and pick up your hot meal. Two juicy pieces of chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, coleslaw, roll and butter.  Tickets must be pre-ordered. See Pay Pal and Venmo information below or contact a board member. We encourage our members to sell tickets. Call or text Melody 515-371-4961

Winter Hit Us Early!

Work on the driveway at The Randleman House was started in October. We had hoped to have the paving done before the end of the year but old man winter came sooner than we expected. Due to parking issues we have cancelled events for the winter and hope to re-open in March or April when the drive is completed. 

Stay tuned for more information about winter events that don't include parking!

SPRING 2021 The last year was difficult for everyone. Many things went undone due to lack of volunteers. Once again the Ackworth Garden Club have done a beautiful job with the Circle Garden. We greatly appreciate their efforts! Without volunteers on every level we can't continue to operate. Please consider volunteering today!
