HISTORICAL SOCIETY NAMED NONPROFIT

OAK CREEKThe Historical Society of Oak Creek and Phippsburg marked a historical moment of its own.

Last week the group attained an advanced ruling from the state for nonprofit status.

While the historical society will have to wait until 2003 to officially receive nonprofit status, it can still reap the benefits of such a designation now.

In the meantime, the historical society is looking for volunteers to run a booth at the Taste of South Routt Saturday.

At the booth, the group will organize four, 45-minute tours of historic coal-mining sites.

For those who want to volunteer, call 736-2491.
