Donnelly takes on society

The Boundary Historical Society held its' AGM last weekend and came away with a new slate of history buffs sitting on the executive.

History will repeat itself —at least in terms of the Boundary Historical Society it will.

For the last couple of years, at annual general meetings, the society has had difficulties finding members willing to step forward and serve as officers of the board. But at their 2013 AGM on Saturday in the Midway Senior

Drop In Centre they came away with a full slate of table officers who are ready to guide the group into the future.

Rock Creek rancher Jamie Haynes was this year’s guest speaker and he presented the history of early grain production in words and pictures as he brought the display which stood near the front gate of the Rock Creek and Boundary Fair last month.

Officers for the coming year are:

Al Donnelly – President

Erin Perkins – Secretary

Sarah Cooper – Treasurer

Delphine Novak – Vice-President

Donnelly said the full compliment of directors wouldn’t be decided upon until the first meeting of the new board._

The Boundary Historical Society was founded in 1951 and consists of current or former Boundary residents interested in local heritage.

The society publishes reports, holds picnics at historic venues throughout the Boundary region, hosts speakers on subjects of historical interest and is the trustee of the Phoenix Pioneer Cemetery.

Memberships are $10 for a single; $15 for a couple; new members are always welcome!
