          Thirty members of the DuBois Area Middle School History Club led by its advisor Robert Anderson paid a visit to the DuBois Area Historical Society’s E. D. Reitz Museum in April. It was the first large group visit to the Society since the start of COVID three years ago.

            Following their walk from the middle school to the museum the students were given a brief introduction before being allowed to walk through the building and ask questions. Society board members Tom Schott, Dick Castonguay, Tom Rubritz, and Emma Miller along with volunteer Ginny Schott were available to answer questions.

            Tours of the museum can be arranged by calling the Society at 814-371-9006.
