Members of the Monett Middle School and High School National Honor Society recently helped the Monett Historical Society move much of its collection from 705 E. Broadway to the new museum location at Fifth and Broadway. A spokesperson for the museum said the help of the students significantly reduced the time it will take to relocate and set up exhibits in the new location. Students took a break in the education room after a long morning of hauling. Contributed photo

Work lasted through much of a Saturday as National Honor Society students carried many pieces from the Monett Historical Society’s first home to its new location. Assembly of new, expanded displays will last into the summer. Pictured carrying a load, from left, are Mercedes Gusta, Middle School NHS sponsor DeAnn Crawford and Sydney Sebastian. Contributed photo
