Welcome, in many ways!

First of all, welcome to the inaugural mailing of our “green” newsletter.  We are happy to join the long list of organizations who have forged the way and hope that you enjoy our efforts.

Secondly, welcome to our new board members Ned Benton and Susan Emery  (who are returning after a year’s hiatus) as well as Beth Belisle, Jim Fleming, Monica Foster, Rick Lefever and Katherine Ann Samon. They each offer new energy and enthusiasm to our team and I’m sure you’ll be hearing more from them during the course of the year.

In addition, I’d also like to welcome you to another year of great programs offered by the Larchmont Historical Society. While we traditionally take the summers off, this year we were busy planning for an exciting fall.

The story of the beautiful American LaFrance Engine One continues as it is currently being restored in Maine, well on its way to returning to Larchmont where it will be once again serving the community in her original condition. The fundraising campaign continues with our Roaring 20″s Firemen’s Ball being held on Saturday, October 30, 2010!  I hope to see many of you at this festive event!

Our goals remain intact this year as we continue our series of events, add addresses to our growing list of Century Homes, develop our oral history program and our website, strive to increase membership and finally, celebrate spring with our wonderful spring house tour.

We truly appreciate your support and welcome your participation. Whether you have an hour to give or would like to serve on a committee, please contact us on line at larchmonthistory.org 914 381 2239 or lhs@larchmonthistory.org.

Colette Rodbell, President
