‘Room of Memories’ proposed for Osmond

OSMOND — Two members of Osmond Senior Citizens addressed the Osmond City Council when the latter group met in regular session on Monday, Jan. 9. The visitors — Norman Lorenz and Alton Fuelberth — explained the idea of establishing a “Room of Memories” in the extra room of the Senior Center.
They proposed starting with pictures of early day Osmond which would be enlarged. The room would not be just pictures; however, large displays would not be allowed. Two volunteers, Chris Adamson and Deb Lorenz, have volunteered to help with setting up the room. Adam Rice has also indicated an interest. The idea started with Sons of the American Legion’s “Christmas Wishes” gathering which included large scenes of Osmond. To Mayor James Bessmer’s question of what goes in the room, the visitors said a committee would be named to evaluate items. The seniors would also provide a time frame for having the room open to the public, such as 10 a.m. to 12 noon and 3 to 5 p.m. in the afternoon.
Mr. Lorenz, who is a member of the county Visitor’s Bureau, suggested that a grant may be available from them. There would be set up costs, heating and air conditioning and picture scanning and framing. The pair suggested that work begin in the winter when people are not as busy.
