Goulbourn Historical Society seeking new Board members

submitted by Barbara Bottriell

Are you interested in local history and looking for a way to contribute to your community? The Goulbourn Historical Society has several vacancies on its Board and is looking in particular for people with marketing experience as well as people with ideas for planning programs throughout the year. These are volunteer positions and require a once-a-month attendance at a Board meeting.

Your fellow Board members are an amiable group who all enjoy learning more about the former Goulbourn Township, which includes Stittsville, Richmond, Munster and Ashton and all the agricultural land around them. The Historical Society prepares exhibits for public presentation, offers a regular speaker’s program, undertakes research about aspects of the Township’s history, publishes brochures and books from time to time, photographs buildings of historical interest, does some costumed interpretation presentations, and maintains a digital photograph collection and keeps records of Family History and Social History files.

If you are interested in applying to become a Board member, please send an expression of your interest along with a brief bio to by January11th.
