Kenmore Heritage Society Incorporates, elects Board of Trustees

   At its third official meeting held last Wednesday, the newly-formed Kenmore Heritage Society took a few more steps toward formal organization. Received that same day was the Certificate of Incorporation from the Secretary of State's office declaring it an official non-profit association.

   The twenty-five members in attendance elected six board members to join the four officers on the Board of Directors. New board members are: Bob Bannister, Char Crawford, Cliff Foster, Cindy Rowley, Ed Straw, and Toy Telquist. They join the officers who were elected in November: Tom Traeger, President; Priscilla Droge, Vice-President; Patsy Telquist, Secretary; and Jeanie McBee, Treasurer.

   Six areas of focus have been identified for the coming year. They include: landmark designation, oral history, collections/archives, school connection, photo/archives, and historical map. Anyone interested in working with the coordinator of these areas is encouraged to come to the next meeting and join the effort.

   The heritage group will be launching a membership campaign throughout the Kenmore community this year. Plans for the campaign and dues' structure will be announced at the next meeting.

   The Kenmore Heritage Society will meet at the Kenmore Community Club on Wednesday, Feb. 10, at 8 p.m. The meeting will follow the Community Club dinner which begins at 6:30 p.m. For more information on the KHS, call Tom Traeger at 488-2818.
