| NEWSLETTER May 2008
Annual General Meeting – At last month’s AGM, we heard reports from the Volunteers’ Committee, the Editorial Committee, the Treasurer and the President. Copies of these reports will be attached to the AGM’s minutes, which can be obtained through the Society. There are two important points from the AGM we would like to share with you in this newsletter: Last year our membership figures declined by 26%, largely due to members forgetting to renew their membership. If you have not done so yet, please download the membership form from the Society’s website at http://www.bahamashistoricalsociety.com/membership.shtml. Also as a consequence of this decline in collected membership fees, the Society operated at a deficit. Please consider helping the Society with an additional donation, you will find a donation form at the bottom of this newsletter.
Next Meeting – Our next meeting is scheduled for May 29th, 2008, at 6:00 pm:
Upcoming Meeting – Our speaker for June will be His Excellency A. Leonard Archer. Please mark Thursday, June 26th, 2008 in your calendars. More details will follow in next month’s newsletter.
Correction – In the last newsletter, we announced that Mrs. Clarice Granger had resigned from the Society’s Fundraising Committee. This was a misunderstanding, and we are very happy and grateful to report that Mrs. Granger is still spearheading the Society’s fundraising effort. If you would like to help in this endeavour, please contact Mrs. Granger through the Society.
Do you recognise this? – This postcard scene of Old Nassau pictures a downtown corner. But which one? You will find the answer in our next newsletter.
