Republic Community Foundation

April 14, 2018

The Republic Community Foundation had their annual banquet on the 10th of April 2018.  They were able to give several grants to area groups that are helping  many people.  The Republic Historical Society was one of the recipients of a eight hundred fourteen dollar grant to purchase eight rolls of The Republic Monitor News-paper on microfilm.  Rolls from 1926 to 1946 have been order from the State Archives, last year, we received the same grant and purchased rolls 1907 to 1925.  This gives the society the ability to research the most often ask years to research.   The paper print is so brittle each time we view them a corner may brake off.  The society will be able to let the public come and view these historical papers on microfilm due to the help of the grants given by the REPUBLIC COMMUNITY FOUNDATION.  We have partnered with the city of Republic in writing a grant for a microfilm scanner and hope to have this all in the near future.
