The Annual Meeting will include a report on highlights of our activities over the past year and the year to come, by our President Fred Lee George III – who will also tell you about our progress in designing our expanded Museum building.  Our Museum Director Mike Zapf will discuss developments in the Museum itself, including a new and important acquisitions. Education Director Rich Gillespie will review last year’s programs and discuss planned programs for 2024, including preparing for the nation’s 250th Anniversary in 2026, and the possibility of another round of the popular “Where We Live: Lovettsville and the German Settlement” field classes. And there will be more, and we encourage your input to help in this process.

We will also be treated to a presentation by the “Phone Wizard,” Bruce Patterson, who is a generous donor to the Lovettsville Museum. Bruce will discuss his phenomenal collection of antique telephones.

We will also conduct such business as is needed, including nomination and election of the Board of Directors for the coming year.

If you are a member or donor, we thank you.

And if you are not yet a member of the Lovettsville Historical Society, we urge you to join today.  This is a great way to show your appreciation of your Historical Society and its programs.
