Planning for the Future
The Society operates through three standing committees: Collections, Facilities, Historic Preservation Easement; and ad-hoc committees: Membership and Marketing, Programs, and Publishing.
The Collections Committee is charged with the collection, restoration, preservation and display of artifacts and documents relevant to the history of the area.
The Facilities Committee is charged with the maintenance and management of all properties owned or operated by the Society. The Committee has been working on the Purdytown Cemetery restoration, the maintenance of the Taft Cemetery and the restoration of the Williams House.
The Historic Preservation Easement Committee monitors the Historic Preservation Easements held by the Society. Currently, the Society holds one easement on two properties.
The Membership and Marketing
Committee coordinates communication and promotes membership
drives, educational programs and fundraisers such as the quilt
raffle. This committee plans the annual awards luncheon and
maintains a social media presence on Facebook.
The Programs Committee schedules speaker and educational programs. The committee works very closely with the Membership and Marketing Committee.
The Publishing Committee works with authors to provide services to take a work from manuscript to final product. The Committee also manages the inventory of publications owned by the Society.
