The Moniteau County Historical Society discussed preparations for fundraising at the upcoming Ozark Ham & Turkey Festival, among other topics, at its September meeting.

The Historical Society will sell slices of pie and drinks during the festival — the price point discussed was $4. Pie sales will take place throughout the day Sept. 21.

It was reported the Historical Society has received a few donations recently, including the tower topper from the city of California's old water tower.

The Historical Society also discussed some tentative plans for future events, namely its annual dinner and a penny drive in partnership with area elementary schools.

Following Monday's meeting, the Historical Society heard from guest speaker Rhonda Chalfant, researcher and historical consultant, about recognizing and restoring historic buildings such as those included on the national register.

The Moniteau County Historical Society's next meeting will be Oct. 14.
