On Wednesday evening,April 2, 2014, at 7:00 the Hastings Historical Society will be hosting their annual General Meeting. It is time to elect a slate of officers for the next two years. This meeting, as per the requirements of the recently passed by law, there will be two new Member-At-Large positions to elect. That will raise the number of Executive Committee members to seven from five.
The presentation for the meeting will be one from Colin Caldwell, a local historian, who will be speaking about the early history of local First nations peoples. It promises to be both educational and entertaining.
The new executive committee positions were felt necessary by the existing executive as they look forward to additional digitization efforts as well as the ongoing work of looking for a storage solution for the HHS archival material. It was also felt desirable to add new blood to the committee. There is a significant ammount of work invoilved in running the society and as the old saying goes, “Many hands make light labour.”
We look forward to seeing a good turnout and are also looking for suggestions for some outings in the coming (we hope) warmer weather.
