ISLAND WITHIN A CITY BOOK COMMITTEE

Progress Report—
Director Wittmann reported about the progress of getting stories to put in the book. Julie attended a Veterans Day ceremony and she handed out a form for the veterans to fill out. We did not get anything back. Dan advised it has been hard getting stories from people. Trustee Ringelstein asked if we published the book tomorrow what Director Wittmann would think our page count would be. Director Wittmann replied that it would be about 100-150 pages. The Trustees will try to commit to getting one person and/or a friend to get a story. Dan advised that he wrote two stories. The committee discussed a few stories about the gas station that blew up and about John Wayne Gacy. They advised that they could do some research on them and potentially add them to the book. Trustee Ringelstein wants to have a “Do you remember?” She said that could possibly be a page filler.

Next Steps—
Director Wittmann reported that they will assess at the next meeting everything they have. Rich wants to know where the gaps are and then they will need to fill in those gaps. Director Wittmann advised that she is not sure where the gaps are, she needs to go through everything. Rich advised that Bobby Crimmins a former police officer may have some stories.

Next Meeting Date
The committee will meet next on February 15, 2024 at 7:00 P.M.
