The Olympia Historical Society’s Summer 2010 Newsletter is available on line
for your reading and viewing pleasure! Link to it here:
, or, go to our website olympiahistory.org and click on the Newsletter menu
for this and previous issues.
I’m sure you will enjoy, as we have, the feature article by Elizabeth Bret,
a descendant of Samuel W and John C Percival – it’s delightful.
While you are visiting our website, check out its new features, including
improved Calendar information. Highlights of the upcoming summer season
include the State Capitol Museum’s summer film festival, and the celebration
of the 100th anniversary of the Sandman in August. In early fall, you will
have the opportunity to join our sister organization and newest member of
OHS, the Lacey Historical Society, for its exciting annual meeting,
featuring celebrated developments in Lacey’s early history.
Speaking of summer, we will be switching to a summer schedule and sending
out only one bulletin a month, instead of the usual two. So keep close to
the website for scheduled events and activities, and get out in the sun if
and when it appears!

The Olympia Historical Society
