Mrs. Bessie Bell Scott was elected general chairperson. Bayard Youn 8. President of the Gilmer Co. Historical Society, de- scribed the application which must be filed with the W. Va.

These areas are Heritage '76: Looking to the past in order to preserve it for future generations; Festival USA: A celebra- tion of the Bicentennial; and Horizons V6: Improving the quality of life in the community. For Heritage '76, the committee decided to promote e collection of the names of 76 persons, ltvin 8 or dead, who have contributed to the development and growth of Gflmer County. Everyone is invited to submit the name, or names, of a person(s} that he, or she, wishes to sponsor with details of the contribution and with a donation of $5 for each name. The donation is requested to help pay for having the collected names and data published in booklet form, with a copy going to each donor. If funds become available later and sufficient interest is shown, several members expressed interest in publishing an up to date history of Gilmer County. For Festival USA, since Iuly 4, 1976, falls on Sunday, a county-wide picnic is being planned at Cedar Creek State Park on that day. This will be an old fashioned picnic basket lunch affair with everyone in the county invited to come and take part. The feature of the program will be a recreation of the signing of the Declaration of Independence with local people in Colonial dress doing the acting. Other entertainment will be added as plans progress. The Folk Festival will also have a Bicentennial theme. For the Horizons '76 phase, several potential projects were discussed.
