Match Day 2023

We are getting ready for Match Day 2023. It will begin with a kickoff party at the Fisher Center on Friday May 26th from 5 to 7:30 p.m.; and the Fisher Center will be open again on Saturday May 27th from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The donor portal will be open from 12:01 a.m. May 26th thru 11:59 p.m. May 29th. We will be sending out letters in the mail to all members when all the information becomes available.

Garage Sale

The Brown County Genealogical Society board has decided to participate in the Hiawatha City wide garage sales May 5th and 6th. We will be having early bird sales on May 4th from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., May 5th from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and May 6th from 8 a.m. to noon, as a fund raiser. We are looking for your “junk” to become someone else’s treasurers! We are asking NO clothing donations. We will begin accepting donations beginning April 6th at the genealogy library.

Memorial Day Flowers

Memorial Day is May 30th. The Brown County Genealogical Society will again be having our Memorial Day flower fund raiser. We (volunteers from the society) will place flowers on your ancestor’s grave in Brown County, for a donation. It is $10 per cemetery for one grave/headstone and $1 for each additional grave/headstone in that same cemetery. We have a number of nice flower arrangements that have been donated by members. Please be sure to tell us which cemetery your ancestor is in and if you know, a brief description of the headstone/grave marker as well as location in the cemetery (if you don’t know it is not a problem we have many maps and we should be able to find it.)
