2019 President’s Message
From the President:
Since the Historical Society moved into the building in 1998, our collections of various form of “history” have built up and we are overflowing. That’s a good thing in a way, but since our space is so limited we struggle with displays and archiving the articles. We want all members to know that you do not have to have a degree in library sciences to help with the organizing, filing and general work here. We welcome any member to come and work with us.
We’ve watched our collection of history and artifacts expand to fill our quarters. A week doesn’t go by without more treasures being donated. We have thousands of photographs, written history, family trees and artifacts; truly a collection warranting a visit. Come by and see your town’s history.
Our Board of Directors has an average age of 70+. We would like to see younger member become active and eventually step in when attrition diminishes our number. Responsible, dedicated lover of history will need to pick up and administer the organization.
We meet at 7 p.m. on the fourth Thursday of each month except November and Occasionally December. We also meet more frequently in planning our annual Cruise-In car show each August, and we can always use additional help with this. The meetings are open to all members and we invite and encourage you to attend.
Come join us.
