A few weeks ago letters were mailed to organizations In Pocahontas requesting histories of the organizations for the centennial Issue of the Record-Democrat Many of the groups have responded with interesting articles, many others have indicated that these articles will be forthcoming, but many others have made no response at all. These histories are urgently needed at the Record-Democrat, and every group is asked to submit this information as soon as possible. Likewise, the request for pictures of early Pocahontas did not bring the response that we had hoped.
