At the Annual Meeting in January, The Board of Dirrectors approved the Annual Budget & proposed a budget for 2014. The Members Meeting relected Gail Linde and Mary Lou Matulevicius to the Board for 3 year terms. The Board elected Lenny Skibicki as President, Ed Matulevicius as Treasurer and Jessica Skibicki and Kelly Butterbaugh as co-secretaries.
This year the emphasis will be on several projects and organizing our photos, book and acquisitions. We are going to make a conscieous effort to acquire photos to compliment our existing collection. If you or someone you know has historical photos or artifacts please get in touch with the Society. Our custom is to scan and return the original photos.
The next meeting of the Lower Milford Historical Society is Monday, March 24 beginning at 7:30pm.
Now that the holidays are over, we can relax and reminise about the good times in the past. Thanks to Ellen Koplin and Gail Linde, a new display at the Township Building is a great memory jogger!. For most of us, this time is remembered as the Fabulous 50's or the Roaring 50's. The display has many items emblematic of that era. This is a good time to stop by the Township Building and see how many items you can remember!
How many items do you remember that are in the display? And to help jog your memory further, how many items do you remember from the items below?
After three years as an informal group, the Lower Milford Historical Society has organized into a non-profit unincorporated association. Among the benefits are:
-- A formal process for maintaining leadership in the Society
-- A process for fund raising that would provide tax deductions for donors
-- An ability to obtain grants and corporate sponsorship for various projects
-- A basis to fund projects and events that would be of interest to members and the community at large
-- A better basis for establishing links with other Historical Societies
-- Newsletters for members about activities and history in Lower Milford Township
All this means better and more benefits for our members.
Membership is only $15/year for an individual membership and $25/year for a family membership.
