Historical society needs officers

The Boundary Historical Society has been open about their need for new members on their board of directors. Will volunteers step up?

Hope everyone has had a good summer and found some opportunities to explore (either physically or via books) the great history of our area.

The annual general meeting of the Boundary Historical Society has been confirmed for Saturday, Oct.19, 1:30 p.m. at the Midway Seniors Centre at the corner of Chamblet Street and 7th Avenue.

This facility is the former Mining Recorder’s Office for the area!

It is absolutely imperative that there is a good attendance at the AGM and that we are able to fill the upcoming vacancies on the board of directors. Specifically, we MUST have a president, secretary and treasurer.

The members currently in these roles are unable to take on another term and the society cannot continue without these positions being filled.

Any organization is only as strong as its membership, and a low turnout at an AGM can be an indication that a society’s days are numbered. So please, plan on attending and encourage friends, family, neighbors or other interested parties to do the same.

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!
