April annual meeting
Saturday, April 19, 2014, will be the Algoma Township Historical Society Annual Meeting. It will be held at 2:00 p.m. at the Chalmers’ School building on the Southwest corner of Fonger St and Pine Island Dr.
They will have Election of Officers to elect a Secretary and Treasurer. If you are interested in serving on the Board of Directors please contact Julie at 866-1583 so she can put your name on the ballot. Planning meetings are the first Thursday of each month at Chalmers’ at 9:00 am.
They will show a movie on the Michigan White Pine Era and try to utilize the 16 MM movie projector that was donated by the Eileen (Munn) and Gordon Bitely family. The projector was Eileen’s parents, Betty & Merrill Munn.
The ATHS is looking to publish a book on Algoma Township. Your input will be greatly appreciated and they will be categorizing and getting information on the contents for this book at this meeting, so that during the year they will be able to put the contents together for publication.
“This book will be a great way to share the history of our township and to preserve those events, activities and people for generations to come,” said Julie Sjogren.
