Goshen Historical Society honors memory of J. Earle, Nadine Roose

Phil and Ellen Straw present a plaque to Karen McDonald in honor of her parents, longtime Goshen Historical Society members J. Earle and Nadine Roose. The newly redesigned office space at the museum is named in their honor. 

GOSHEN — The Goshen Historical Society had its annual business meeting at the Spring Brooke clubhouse. Light refreshments were served prior to a brief business meeting.

During the business meeting John Hertzler, Tom Holtzinger, Jane Iwema and Ursula Mars were re-elected to serve another three-year term on the board of directors.

A special plaque naming the museum’s newly redesigned office space in memory of longtime society members J. Earle and Nadine Roose was made to their daughter, Karen Roose McDonald. The presentation was made by Phil and Ellen Straw.

 Kyle Hufford and Ben Hathaway of FiveCore Media presented the program for the evening. They reported on the progress of the making of a film highlighting the efforts of the Plaut family of Goshen to aid German Jews leaving Germany in the 1930s and 1940s.

The film is in post-production with a release date yet to be determined.
