A History of Weather & Observations in Clinton County
Thursday, March 10
At the History Center, corner of Locust and Lincoln, Wilmington
Ashley Novak, meteorologist and forecaster with the National Weather Service office in Wilmington, will explore the history of weather and observations in Clinton County. Weather affects us every day and plays an important role in the history of Clinton County. Weather observers submit a daily report and it is this record that helps forecasters at the National Weather Service have a better understanding of what has occurred and the historical perspective of different events. These records become part of the climate history of the United States. The weather is always changing and many significant weather events have occurred in Clinton County over the years. Ashley will highlight some of these events and present some climate statistics for Clinton County.
This event is presented to the community at no charge and will take place at the Clinton County History Center, 149 E. Locust Street in Wilmington. Donations appreciated.

New Shelving in the Library
This year the Clinton County Genealogical Society is very busy with a major upgrade to the History Center Research Library. During the latter part of 2015 the Society raised the money to replace and expand the shelving in the library to accommodate the every growing collection of genealogy and history resources. The shelving has been installed and the library resources will be in place when the library reopens on March 2nd.
