The October 1975 semi-annual meeting was held in the new family center, even though there was still much work to finish on the inside. It was decided in late October of 1976 that William O. Tolman, the family genealogist, would live in the family center, so he could better oversee the genealogical research. He, his wife and one daughter moved into the upstairs apartment in early 1977. To facilitate finishing the construction of the home, in August of 1977, L. DeVon Mecham called on cousins to honor or pay tribute to our ancestors by making a financial contribution to the home in their name.
