Dear Members and Friends of WFHS,
A new year is dawning and the Board of Directors of WFHS is looking forward to more adventures as we explore local history together. Many of you had the opportunity to enjoy a variety of rotating displays at our History Center in Howard over the past year. We will continue to experiment with new ways to utilize that beautifully restored building this year.
Here is what we have in store for our history loving friends this season
After months of canceled events and limited social contacts, you may be ready for some positive news.
We hope this finds you safe and well during these very uncertain times. We want to thank those of you who paid your annual dues before this pandemic became our new reality. Several of our major expenses, such as taxes and insurance on the historic church building/history center, will still be incurred, so we appreciate your loyalty and support during this unprecedented time. We appointed two new Board members, Casey and Debbie Hildebrand, to serve until they are officially elected at our next annual meeting. So although our programs and tours have been suspended for the time being, we are still active and we want to keep in touch with all of you.
Summer has arrived (at least on the calendar!) and the WFHS board has some great events planned:
The Board of Directors of WESTERN FREMONT HISTORICAL SOCIETY is gearing up to share history with all of you in 2019. We thoroughly enjoyed seeing so many of you at our programs, events and tours in 2018, and look forward to exchanging information and getting to know you better in the coming year.
Greetings of the season to you all. As the year draws to a close it’s time to share with you a summary of WFHS’ 2018 activities and updates and welcome new members. We try to issue 4 newsletters a year.
The WFHS Board of Directors has been busy preparing for another season of special events for our history-loving members and friends. We enjoyed seeing many of you at our Annual Meeting and program, “Barnes City: Boom or Bust?” in March, and appreciate your support as we plan our summer and fall programs. Our website is up and running, as is our Facebook page, so if you have not already done so, please check out those new sources of information and give us your feedback.
Greetings from the WFHS Board of Directors! 2018 is here and we are excited as we begin planning another year of historical activities focused on western Fremont County. We have recruited two new members to our Board; Shari Mohr and Kris Shurr will be introduced and formally voted upon at our Annual Meeting in March. We are grateful to have two more congenial, tech-savy volunteers as we embark on an especially busy year.
