Dear Members of the Boundary Historical Society, welcome to our April BHS member newsletter!
First, mark your calendar, our annual picnic will be held at Owl Mountain Ranch (between Grand Forks & Christina Lake) on Saturday, June 15th. Details will be coming out towards the end of May but plan on bringing your lunch, your lawn chair, your family and/or friends and a prayer for sunshine!
Our publications committee is continuing to work hard on both our next report and our upcoming post card book. Articles are slow to come in though. While the committee can edit and compile articles, they can’t write them all. If you have knowledge of Boundary history, or life in the Boundary in earlier years, please consider putting them in print for sharing. History unshared is history unknown. Articles can be dropped off at the Archives (in the basement of City Hall), mailed to us at the address below or handed in through any board member.
Information from the Fall Fair board (being held August 23 – 25th) is that this year’s theme will be “Going Back to the Past” – we are hoping to have a table again this year for selling memberships and books.
Remember - we need new faces for our board as of our AGM in the autumn. If you’re interested in a specific position, feel free to contact the person currently in that position (or any other board member) for information about what’s involved.
Our next Board meeting is scheduled for late May, so the next newsletter should be posted on our blog, and an email notification sent, 2 – 3 weeks later. In the meantime, get those pens or keyboards working!
