Hello Steemit,

I’ve been writing on here for over a year now. It’s been unreal, writing for three contests almost every week. Well, I’ve got hooked on SteemNova and I’m currently building a space empire. Long story short I’m getting burned out.

No fear!

I’ve already started the Lords of Hemp: Steemit Blog series and I still plan to write in one contest a week.

However, at this time I’d like to present a new series, The Ashland Heritage Committee meeting notes!

These meeting notes start in January of 2011 when my Father lived, they continue until today’s meeting. I’d picked up writing meeting notes with the Inlandia Institute in Riverside, California, with Marion-Mitchell Wilson (also deceased).

So just like with The Lords of Hemp, I plan to start at the beginning, and work my way into present day. This will allow me to continue posting three times a week while giving me a little break in the creative process.

Thanks for your understanding . . .

Here’s the notes from that first meeting.

Thanks for the support. Much needed on an independent project.

A blast from the past. Ha ha

I'm a history buff, even more than a writer hobbyist and science explorer. The best material is stuff like this, original notes, records. Right now I'm listening (on my iPad) to Bradford's History of the Plymouth Plantation to put me to sleep every night.
Good luck with this.


Thanks @agmoore2. As an Emerson we are supposed to be connected to that area. Although my information has not been verified.

My Dad wrote The Applegate Trail of 1846. Another Amazon book project for me to tackle. It deals with the incorporation of Southern Oregon into the United States. When I can offer a free ebook in the future I'll let you know.

Many thanks. Good to know a fellow history buff.
