LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT
Welcome to spring! Where does the time go, seems like I just wrote a President’s letter for spring.
Even though we have been in 2010 for a few months now, longer days and sunshine make us think of new beginnings. It feels like a new year is upon us. We get eager to get things cleaned up and organized. The Wallingford Historical Society in some way is starting its new year now. We kind of drift through the winter but it’s time to get into high gear. Our first program will be in April this year. Poetry of Wallingford and Vermont will be the topic. April is National Poetry Month. Come join us, bring a poem about Wallingford or Vermont to share (you can read or someone else will) and enjoy our coffee house refreshments. The program will be on the last Tuesday of the month at 7:00pm in the Town Hall.
We are always looking for help of one kind or another but so far response has been slow. We really could use help with program planning, organization of the storage room, cataloging of items and light cleaning of the exhibit space. We also will be having elections in August and new enthusiasm is always welcome. I know people are very busy just trying to make a living these days but if you need or want a break from everyday things we would welcome you to join us. If I can answer any questions for you about the Wallingford Historical Society or you have suggestions to pass on please call me at 446-3560.
Our May program will be very interesting to those of you who love to read historical biographies but don’t always have lots of time to do it. Robert Buckeye, former Middlebury College archivist has written a series of historical biographies about little known, but important Vermonters. These biographies are only about 12 pages long. “These people should be better known” he says and Mr. Buckeye sets out to do just that. So join us in May for this unique program
Thank you for your continued support!
Christine Bannerman, President
