Because the pandemic news globally is still disturbing, despite the leveling off of cases here in NH and the easing of some restrictions, it is still in the best interests of the membership that no in-person May meeting be held. And since no nominations have been forthcoming from the membership, the following slate of Officers and Directors for 2021-2022 is open to a motion and second for voting. The first motion received by email, based on the timestamp, will be considered the motion to accept, and the “second” will be the next email received after that. All members are invited to vote “yea” or “nay”, by email, on the following slate:

President                  Leigh A. Webb
Vice President            Linda Pauwels
Treasurer                     Dan Darling
Recording Secretary      Karen Darling
Co-recording Secretary     Dan Cerat
Curator                          Annette Andreozzi
Asst. Curator           Annette Cain
Director                 Glenn Morrill            Term ending 2024
Director                 Karen Grzelak           Term ending 2024
Director               Sandra Burney          Filling term for Steve Foley, ending 2022

[All other Directors will continue to serve out their terms]
Thank you in advance for helping to cope with these extraordinary times by participating in this annual, and important, election via email.

The Franklin Historical Society was incorporated in 1981 to study and preserve the history of Franklin.

Housed in the Historic Webster Tay/House, a part of Daniel Webster's "Elms Farm" from 1799-1855, later the New Hampshire Orphanage from 1871-1959, and now the Webster Place Recovery Center, the Society meets on the first Thursday of the month from April through November. Scroll down the page to see directional photos.
