It was an evening for taking stock of 2009 activities and planning 2010 at the Caroline Museum on Wednesday, January 13. It was also the time to update board memberships for 2010 where Verna Smith graciously accepted the job of President of the society.
The museum is in good shape financially with revenue for the year that ended October 31, 2009, of $82,923 and expenses of $74,954, as reported by Treasurer Verna Doll. Barb Proudler reported that the main project for 2009 was the construction of the vintage fire hall/village office on the museum grounds and the big event for the year was the official opening of this facility, along with honoring area pioneer families on September 12.
Verna Doll reported that 7000 items had been accessioned (recorded, ranked) in 2009.
Events planned for 2010 include the May long weekend and Canada Day programs, Honoring pioneer families, pie fundraiser and a bazaar and a volunteer appreciation supper in December.
