Historical society appreciative of voters’ support

Dear Editor,

On August 7, 2018, the townships of Hagar, Watervliet, Coloma, and Bainbridge, and the cities of Watervliet and Coloma, voted “yes” to continue the funding of the North Berrien Historical Society/ Museum. With four years of funding confirmed, we can now focus on enhancing our public visibility, audience and volunteer engagement, historic collections, and facilities. We will strive to diversify our income while maintaining free or low-cost services to the public.

The staff and board members of the North Berrien Historical Society/ Museum made a goal to become a regionally known and respected institution, and a welcoming, dynamic attraction that constantly reaches new residents and visitors in achieving our mission.

These goals are only reachable because of our voters that participated on August 7. I would like to personally thank all of our supporters for their efforts in passing the Society’s third millage renewal. With increased margins across nearly all communities, I feel very fortunate to be a part of an organization with such great backing.

Please feel free to attend all of our wonderful programs and activities throughout the rest of this year and for the next four. Thank you all again!

Sincerely,

Jack Greve

Executive Director

North Berrien Historical Museum
