Benefit Drawing ResultsLaura Brown of Tuscola received the iPad; Martha Gillilan of Abilene received the quilt made by Anita McCoy

JNVHP would like to invite you to join us in our efforts to restore our 100 year old building in Tuscola. The Jim Ned High School Gymnasium area is where we will have a table set up for our Benefit Drawing. There will also be a 20x30 display poster showing several pictures and maps related to the building.

For the first drawing, the i-Pad is valued at $800.00 and was donated by Larry Swindle, 1963 JN Alumni.  The second drawing is the Homemade Quilt made by Anita McCoy valued at $300.00. Thank you to these two individuals. There is no limit to the amount a person may wish to donate and anyone can participate in the drawing, even if you are unable to attend any games.

The benefit drawing is tonight, Dec. 18th during half-time of the last game of the evening, so make sure your donation ticket is received before 8:30 p.m. tonight.

We look forward to forging new relationships and appreciate your participation in the efforts to represent our community with a research library and museum.


We had a wonderful turnout at our 2nd Annual Membership Dinner in April. Our raffle winners for the Traveling Tales and Whispering Walls Family Reflections Collection were Johnnie Boatman and Clinton Wheeler. Pictured below are Board member Linda Stockton presenting Clinton with the book.


Thank you for participating in our Fundraiser Raffle. The winners received a FREE 2-Vol set of the Restful Peace Cemetery Collection. Those winners were Linda Stockton and Margie Wheeler. Picture is of board member, Marceille McIntyre (right), presenting the set of books to raffle winner Linda Stockton.


The Heritage Library and Museum Fund-Raiser was a success - Lots of stories shared while browsing through the yearbooks, and viewing the displays on the walls at the Rose River Properties Building (formerly the American Legion Hall) in Tuscola. Below is a picture of Jimmie and Joe Graham, grandsons of John Lewis Graham and Nancy Jane (Cook) Graham, who came to the Old Tuscola area around 1885. Jimmie and Joe Graham are 1942 graduates of the Tuscola Tigers.
