It's getting harder for Oakfield Historical Society to cope with leaky roof

An aging and leaky roof on the Victorian home that houses the Oakfield Historical Society's Museum and Research Center is jeopardizing the collection of artifacts and documents in the society's care. Water and old things usually don't mix well and members of the society are concerned about the current condition of the roof, which they've been unable to repair.

The society is planning a series of fundraisers, including an upcoming golf tournament, but they're also making a direct appeal for donations through GoFundMe.com.

The cost of a new roof and needed repairs are expected to be at least $25,000.
