Your board of directors has some interesting programs planned, and our fund raisers promise to be fun social events. Because of the good stewardship of your officers over the past three decades, we do not burden our members with continual projects to raise money. We only have two: our Trash and Treasures Sale on May 12, and our Strawberry Festival on June 25.

We need your help!

Please save your good, used items and donate them for our Trash and Treasures sale. It is scheduled to coincide with Alfred Tech and University graduations, and we should have a good crowd of buyers. Also, we can use folks to help set up, take down, put away, wait on customers, and also buy things!! Can you give us a few hours of your time that day?? This is also a great place to have lunch: We will serve beef on weck, hot dogs, and homemade baked goods.

The Strawberry Festival is the unofficial summer kickoff event for the community, and we need helpers for that, as well as customers. Please put these dates on your calendar, and contact an AHS officer to offer to help.

Your dues notice is also enclosed. You can help us by sending your check in promptly. We want to keep our dues very affordable - and we feel they are a good value, considering that you receive five issues of the newsletter each year. Some of you are unable to assist in our fundraisers. If you would like to send a donation in addition to your dues, we would be most happy to receive it.

Most of our board members are people who have served the Historical Society for many, many years. If you would like to offer your services to help, it would be very encouraging to us.

I would like to recognize our officers and thank them for all the work they do for AHS:

President: Kitty Baker

Vice President: Hazel Bracken

Treasurer: Wayne Kellogg

Secretary: Donna B. Ryan

Directors: Anna Morford, Lillian Hanks, Betty Kellogg, Chub Lockwood, Cindy Banker, Harriet Jay

Archivist: Doris Montgomery Clothing and Textile Curator: Mary Ellen Westlake

Genealogy Research: Barbara Bernstein

Many of these folks were charter members of AHS thirty-five years ago. If you see any of them, how about thanking them for their total commitment to preserving our history by maintaining our museum, Hagadorn House.

We hope to see you in 2001! We are always glad to hear from our members.
