As President Mark Foutch reports above, the Olympia Historical Society is actively pursuing its mission and goals, and invites our members and readers of this newsletter to join in exploring, preserving and sharing the stories and artifacts of our history. If you have delved into the history of your historic home or pioneer forebears, or researched the history of a longtime business or organization, or discovered letters, diaries, photographs, or records of activities or events that would help us piece together the mosaic of our past, please consider writing an article to be posted here or donating or making copies of records for our archival collection. If your organization, business, church or other group will be celebrating an important anniversary, we’d like to hear about your history and how you plan to mark the occasion. Your story enriches everyone’s understanding and appreciation of our local history! Please send story ideas, articles for inclusion and other notices to: firstname.lastname@example.org with “OHS newsletter” in the subject line.
