President’s Message – February 2019

Newsletter #134Dear Members and Friends,

Thank you very much for your continuing support of NVDHS. I always appreciate the opportunity to communicate with our members and friends of the Society during our regular hours (Tuesdays and Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. until noon) and via our quarterly newsletter. 

We have been successful in raising funds from the community to finance our digitization project. Bob Malone, Director and our Past President, has been instrumental in leading this funding effort. We are grateful for Bob’s efforts. This project will computerize the records and assets of the NVDHS for easy access by the Community and all interested parties. We look forward to completing this task.

Upcoming Spring events include our Annual General Meeting, a General Meeting with speaker, and participation in Doors Open. During the summer we anticipate participating in the Wooden Boat Show and hope to hold a member’s potluck as we did last year. The Fall will bring our participation in the Orono Fair, the Newcastle Fall Harvest Festival, Newcastle’s Santa Parade, and the Historical Room will host a Remembrance display and our Christmas party. Please check this website and newsletters for dates and particulars.

I would like to personally thank all of our executive and directors and volunteers for their work throughout the year. They are special people. 

Tom WallaceDuring the final quarter we exhibited a memoriam honouring the men and women from Newcastle and District who served to preserve our freedoms and way of life. It was truly a memorable and educational display. Our Christmas Party gave us the special opportunity to meet many people from the area who really have been major contributors in making Newcastle and District the great community that it is today.

On behalf of the NVDHS, I extend our best wishes to all of our members, friends, and supporters.

Tom Wallace
