From Betsy Tonkin, Plymouth Historical Society
Michael Clarke was elected president of the Historical Society and Betsy Tonkin will continue as Sec./Treas. The group elected to exhibit at the History Expo in June. The theme is Vermont and the Civil War. Anyone with stories or memorabilia connecting Plymouth to that era are encouraged to contact the Historical Society.
There will be a Historical Society table at Town Meeting on March 5 displaying souvenirs, books, etc. and providing an opportunity to join with a membership. Membership is $5 for a single membership and $10 for a family.
In addition, there will be a drop box for people willing to share their pictures, videos or stories of Irene. Documenting this historic event will be a focus of the society for the coming year.
We encourage anyone interested in participating in historical society activities for 2012 to join us for our next meeting, which will be March 11th, 3 PM, at Spike’s Place on Route 100A. If anyone has a special skill or interest, please come to the next meeting and see how it might be beneficial to the society. Future programs will also be discussed.
