The History Committee met briefly after church on February 8, 2009 and discussed several possibilities for future projects. It was decided that we should tackle the large slide collection. Our next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, March 3, at 10:00 am at the church. We will decide who will be doing this project and begin selecting slides for digitization. We will also consider other topics for future projects. Please join us if you can.
For those of us in attendance at the planning meeting, Tuesday morning is a good time to meet. Please do not be discouraged if this is a difficult time for you. Just contact Carol Coburn to let her know your interest in helping with history projects, and we will set a time convenient for you to meet and discuss your involvement! We are especially looking for help and input from our young people. So please consider picking a project or proposing another completely new idea. Don’t forget, your time volunteered may be eligible for counting towards your volunteer hours at school.
Just to remind you of some topics needing attention:
Collecting, arranging and storing of our memorabilia and documents in our church archives,
Video taping of church-related stories,
Written history, considering another book?
Digitization and display of photo/other media collections,
Researching our congregational background and linking it to today’s world,
Special events and displays, Celebrate History Day at church,
Should we become a State Historical Site? We could be the third site in the Town.
