Acknowledgement to Melva Welch.

For over 25 years, Melva has researched and compiled the history of our area and has been a strong supporter of the local Progress Associations.  For many years she produced the local community newspaper The Advisor.  All this work carried out as a volunteer.

Without Melva`s assistance over the years, much of the information and photographs contained in this site would not have been available.

Thank you, Melva
