Historical society needs help

The board of the Boundary Historical Society is anxious to get new directors this year,or else the society may fold.

Re: Historical Society Needs Help – Boundary Creek Times – October 2, 2014

Where did everyone go? Come on back or join us for the first time.

This is what we are faced with, turning the Boundary Historical Society into a piece of history, something we speak of in the “past tense.”

My name is Janet Matsalla and I’m a current director for the Boundary Historical Society, having been a director for just over a year.

During our last meeting it saddened myself and fellow board members to even discuss the possibility of closing the door on the society, but that reality is upon us now.

Please: if you or if you know of someone who enjoys reading about the history which includes areas from Westbridge all the way to Christina Lake, it will only survive with your involvement.

Come forward, this is our last chance to keep it going.

Give us a call at 250-442-1242 or email boundaryhistorical@gmail.com.

Janet Matsalla, Jewel Lake
