GCHS winter cleanup

These Gasconade County Historical Society (GCHS) members took an opportunity from frigid weather to clean up the courtyard at the GCHS Archives and Records Center. 

From left are Jovita and Vincent Klott (with chainsaw) and Bob Pinkerton. While taking this photo last Thursday, the A-C witnessed the result of a smoke alarm within the Center alerting the contracted alarm service. GCHS member Lois Kruse arrived to check out the scene followed by Hermann Police Chief Marlin Walker, who arrived soon after and was immediately followed by a Hermann Volunteer Fire Department pumper truck. The alarm turned out to be a false one.
