Album of Memories and Contributions

To honor the memory of those who are recognized as Benefactors, Founders, or Named Fund, the Wood River Community Centennial Foundation Board established a Memorial Book to record their story. Some of the stories have been received which indirectly tell the story of the Wood River area. Some of the stories tell of the “old ties” to the community. Other stories tell of individuals who lived in our community for a short time or who visited and left their “memories” with us.
The family is asked to prepare a resume for the honored individual (family). Below is an explanation of the format and suggestions for the story. A copy of the Biography Book is at the Foundation Office. The stories may be found on the Wood River Community Centennial Foundation website, www.wrcommunityfoundation.com
Along with the Resume the Foundation would like to include a picture of the honored person. This picture can be a snap shot: it does not have to be a formal picture.

Format for the Resume
1. One 1x11 sheet (regular size) typed
2. Single spaced, wide left margin
3. One typed sheet is approximately 500
Suggestions for the Biography:
1. Family (parents, spouse, children)
2. Occupation
3. Ties with the Community
4. Interests in Wood River Community
5. Other points of interest: “What would you like the community to remember about this person?”

The resume may be mailed to the Foundation at P.O. Box 493, Wood River, 68883 or e-mail to [email protected]
