The Thompson board will meet on Tuesday, Oct. 15, 5:30 p.m., at the Thompson House, 300 S. College Ave.

The board meeting is open to the public, and new members are welcome.

The main item on the agenda is the fall fundraiser, Victorian Christmas.

Board members are always in need of volunteers to help set up and display items to be sold, to watch over the items, to help customers, and answer questions they may have about the house.

Donated baked goods and other fall fare are sold in the kitchen, with all of those profits going to the Thompson House.
