On Founder's Day June 19, 2010, The Reily
Historical Society opened it's doors of the
new museum from 2:00-4:00 to the public.
Everyone was impressed by the great
renovation and the things inside that we
have already accumulated. We need many
more things to share with the community. If
you have any Reily antiques, pictures,
household items, furniture etc. that you
would like to donate, or loan, for display,
please let us know.

MEETINGS AND EVENTS:
June 28th, Saturday- Founder's Day
was great. Eastfork Junction gave us
Bluegrass music to tap our feet to.
The grilled brats and hot dogs were
tasty. Kids of all ages had fun and
participated in the parade. We kept
the lemonade and ice cream coming
to hungry and thirsty Reily residents.
It was hot,but the rain held off. The
Reily Fire Department and EMTs put
on a demonstration showing how they
can use an impressive piece of
equipment to save a farm worker from
grain bin accidents. We are a lucky
community to have this kind of
equipment and knowledge in our
town. Our museum was open all
afternoon with a new look and more
artifacts than ever to view. Thank you
to all who participated to make this
year a success.
