January 2016 From the Portsmouth Historical Society--

 

 

As the new President of the Portsmouth Historical Society, and speaking for its Board of Directors, I would like to express our great appreciation to the Portsmouth Garden Club for the placement of wreaths on the doors of the Portsmouth Historical museum this Christmas season.

 

 

Recently we have initiated a new membership drive for the Society, which so far has yielded 210 new members (!) and we are really pleased to see the museum looking decorated for the holiday. We are successfully energizing the Historical Society (and we hope all of you are members) as we move forward in 2016.

 

 

 

Thank you once again; we are most grateful and we will see you at the museum for our lecture series. Also we will be celebrating Founders' Day around March 7th and we will have the original Portsmouth Compact, signed in 1638, on display.

 

 

 

Best wishes,

 

Jim Garman

 

President, Portsmouth Historical Society
