Volume 15, Issue 1
From Dick Weimer
January - 2013
Another year is fast fading away. Your Society has had a busy year, and we are looking forward to 2013. I want to thank our two outgoing directors, Marjorie Papp and Bob Lodge, for their years of dedicated service. With passage of the revised bylaws in December, our board has expanded to eight members, so I extend a hearty welcome to four new directors – Genni King, Jim Marshall, Doris West, and Bill Zellers. Their input will be very important.
We hope to grow by adding new members, expand our programs, and let the general public know who we are and what we are about. New brochures are in the making. We are encouraging visits from local school classes, working to let the local communities know more about us, planning programs about the 1913 Flood, and asking every member to become more active in the Society by volunteering for committees, and serving as project leaders and hosts.
Most of you know that we have a good thing here. However, many citizens in the local communities know little or nothing about who we are and the assets we possess. So I am asking all of you to be salespersons for your Society. No one else can blow our horn better than we can. Let's look forward to a healthy and prosperous new year and start by blowing our own horn.
