This is a delightful group, probably as close to a Hot Stove League as we have today. The meeting hall is quite interesting, not only for their displays but for others in the building which you can view enroute to the GE room. This group has done so much to keep the river heritage alive in St. Louis and would do more if they had more members, especially who lived closer. As Keith pointed out, they are honoring the 90yr+ group, and those doing the honoring are mostly very close to that age. This was one reason they had to close their museum out at Bee Tree, but most of those items are now on display in the university museum in Cape Girardeau. This group is very unusual, in that they have an 'excess' of funds, so that their Christmas dinner parties are free to members and a guest. And the Paddlewheel newsletter is not only interesting, it is published regularly and in a timely fashion. Keith and I are proud to be life members of this group, and I only wish I lived closer to be able to attend more of their functions.
