The Heritage Needs Your Memories!
MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
I hope that your summer is going well so far. Looks like our days of cooler weather might be over.
The society has had to venture into new territory during the pandemic. The board has had a number of zoom meetings to continue to conduct business and these seemed to go well. For the first time ever, we sent ballots for the election of board members by email and mail since the quarterly luncheon at which the election would have occurred, was cancelled. We had no idea how this would be received but we received back a good number of ballots. Doing it this way this time, we had the opportunity to reach out to members who might not come to a quarterly luncheon. If you have an opinion about this, please let us know.
From the election results, Greg Hilton returned to the board. Maureen Bouxein left the board at least for one year as she had served two consecutive terms. I will continue as President of the Board with Patti Dickherber as 1st Vice President and Mary Brown as 2nd Vice President. Please reach out to any of us if you have any questions or issues.

We are also continuing to review the best strategy for the opening of the society building. Individuals are allowed to come to the building by appointment and this is to maintain the safety of our staff and volunteers as well as our visitors. It seems to be going well so far. Amy and Kathy continue to work and are getting projects accomplished. I am not sure when things will return to what we called normal for so long.
As I type, we are still planning to have our quarterly luncheon on Saturday, July 25 but that will depend upon what we hear from All Occasion Banquet Center on social distancing requirements that are in place at that time.
Please stay safe and healthy.
