Last night, the Board of Directors met at the Quirk House. President Terry Johnson presided over the meeting. She, as well as others, were sick this winter, and that prevented a lot from being done. Now that we are all on the mend, we will move forward with activities and meetings. Our Annual meeting will be in June. The date will be announced shortly. At Charter Day, Sunday June 16, the Historical Association will have children games of yesteryear. The games will be behind the gazebo. Please mark your calendars and bring the kids. We realize it is Fathers Day, but the kids are sure to enjoy the old fashioned games.
Our page has reached a lot of people. We have been contacted by a doctor in England who is researching Abbie Lathrop, the "mouse lady" and a lady in Washington contacted us for information on the Chapin family and another lady about the Lahey families.
We will be open for a tag sale on May 25. We did this last year and we were successful. We will also have the tag sale during Dino Fest and Columbus Day. This is a good fundraiser for us. Our buildings are old and the maintenance is expensive.
The Holly Tea last December was well received and well attended. We will do it again in December. Thank you to all who helped and all who attended. We are also considering an "ice tea" social in the summer. Any thoughts on this or comments?
The Town House will be open on Sundays in July and August from 1 to 4 PM. We will be looking for volunteers to come and answer questions of the visitors who come in. Please consider doing this.
Lastly, please check your parents and grandparents old photo albums. Specifically, I am looking for old photos or information on the Granby Distilling Company or the Granby Electric Company. This is the last bit of information I want to include in the history book.
Terry is working on a news letter and that will be sent to all members. Just a reminder that dues are due.
