From the Director: MHS Annual Meeting

AnnualMeeting2013_-1We are thrilled to be holding Maine Historical Society’s 191st Annual Meeting in Biddeford this Saturday, and to welcome Colin Woodard as our keynote speaker. I hope we’ll see many of you there!

The Annual Meeting is an important part of MHS. It is focused on our members, and is the moment they come together for updates on all aspects of the organization, including the election of Trustees (voted by the members); to vote on current business (including updated bylaws this year); and, to recognize volunteers, trustees, and historians who have made an impact.

This year’s program is particularly rich in Maine history: the Pepperell Mill Campus is stunning—for its scale, architecture, visceral sense of history, and its redevelopment ambition. Likewise, Colin Woodard is one of Maine’s most perceptive current thinkers about history. He gives a great deal of care and thought to the role that history plays in contemporary life, something that is very important to MHS.

If you are an MHS member, thank you. If you are not yet, the Annual Meeting is a wonderful moment to join and get more involved in MHS. To register for the meeting, call 774-1822.

    Hello Steve, Nick, Bill , Candace, and gang, I want very much to see you all, but this year the MHS Annual Meeting conflicts with Bates College reunion and I’ve made commitments to meet with several former students (I just hope they have name cards!) So I will be with you all in spirit and hope to catch up with you in the near future. All the best.
