The Historical Society had its Annual Meeting directly after the Art and Collections show. I have to say not very many people stayed, however those who did heard our accomplishments of the past year. We had five wonderful programs, developed an investment policy and worked on our collection. It seems in these hard time people are less concerned with civic organizations such as ours, consequently we could not fill our slate of officers for the following year. We have no treasurer, and need at least two new board members. If anyone is interested please let me know. Lowell Klock has handed the responsibility for the Perspective over to Tammy Heffernan. Lowell has done a splendid job for the Historical Society and we thank her. Tammy has also started a web page for us. Check it out.
The Historical Society always has a wish list and one thing on that list that would be of great use to us is a slide projector. We have so many slides in our collection and in order to ever view them or use them in a program we need a projector. I realize this is old technology but the cost of putting them on DVD doesn’t make sense. If anyone knows where we could acquire one please let Joyce know.
In the coming months we will be putting together our program schedule for next year. We have some ideas but can always use more. The Historical Society has access to an all year round facility and it would be nice to have more programs but that takes people and ideas. If you have suggestions for changes of time, dates or any other program concerns please let me know.
Enjoy the beautiful autumn weather and stay well.
Christine Bannerman, President
