The Mary Ingalls Society has been hard at work. Not only were they able to put on their first event this year and gearing up for their first pageant this summer, but they’ve been doing a lot of behind the scenes work too. The previous museum space had been damaged during the straight line winds and closely following rains and retrieval efforts a lot of the organization of the system was lost as things were knocked around by the wind and thrown into boxes in the efforts to rescue them. Sadly some things were permanently lost, but Mary Ingalls Society volunteers have been re-organizing things and seeing that they are scanned for preservation, framed in correct conservation approved style, and other wise safely stored. They have been working in a couple of the rooms and plan on moving operations to a new location soon in the Iowa School for the Blind building.
