Are you a STAR? Do you know someone who is??

Just a friendly reminder / public service announcement:
ANYONE can nominate a GFO Star at our library.

Are you a GFO patron, member, or guest who had a REALLY amazing experience with one of our Research Assistants? Nominate them!

Were you at one of our recent events and thought the speaker or coordinator did just the most wonderful job because their presentation and drive to bestow knowledge changed your life? Nominate them!

Are you friends with a GFO volunteer who can’t stop talking about all the exciting work they are doing at the GFO library even when you’d rather talk about the latest Who Do You Think You Are? episode? Nominate them as the next GFO Star!

The GFO Star nominations are designed to shine the spotlight on all of our wonderful and amazing volunteers for all the wonderful and amazing work they do for the GFO. And guess what, the GFO is ALL VOLUNTEERS, so you’ve got sooo many people to choose from! Star Nomination forms are on top of the Star Nominations box that is on the wall above the “Beverage Park” table just to the right of the GFO’s front entrance as you come in.
Please note, Board Members cannot be stars because they are already technically categorized as supernovas and are about to burn themselves out in a fantastic flaming epic of glory.

Write It Up! Saturday, October 21st, 2 – 4pm

Presenter: Marti Dell, Co-Editor, GFO Bulletin

You’ve been meaning to write up your family history stories and findings, but with several thousand people on your tree, the task is overwhelming. Never fear, though, because help is here! The GFO’s own Marti Dell, Co-Editor of The Bulletin, can help you identify just one thing you really need to share with others, then write it up! Does anyone else know how your grandma and grandpa met? Why are so many of your female relatives named “Oney”? Some day your 9-year-old grandson will want to know about your family history trip to Sweden. You won’t get everything written until you get one thing written.

And since you’re writing up just one thing anyway, consider sending a copy to The Bulletin for publication. We have editors and proofreaders who will make sure your commas are in the right place and your source citations are formatted properly. What we don’t have, but need, is your story.
This is one of GFO’s monthly GenTalks, which means it’s completely FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.
