The North Lincoln County Historical Museum cordially invites you to attend our annual Community Picnic on Saturday, September 16th, at 11:30 am. This year, we are celebrating NLCHM’s 30th Anniversary, and honoring long-time museum volunteer and supporter, Nova Longtain. The picnic draws people from all over the state who want to meet up with old friends or share memories. It is open to old timers and newcomers alike. There’ll be door prizes, a raffle, and a cakewalk. It’s a potluck picnic, so bring your favorite dish and a place setting. The gathering begins at 11:30 and is usually over by 2:30 pm. Food is served at noon. The picnic was originally to take place at Wapiti Park, however due to a conflict, the location has been changed to the NLCH Museum located at 4907 SW Hwy 101, Lincoln City, Oregon. For more information call 541-996-6614. Hope to see you there!
I am sorry to say that I will be retiring as Executive Director of the museum on February 1, 2018. It has been an honor working for NLCH Museum. I will miss it, and all the lovely people involved with the museum very much. We will be recruiting a new museum director over the next few months.
Highlights and Election Results
Board President Gordon “Mick” McLean opened the annual membership meeting of the North Lincoln County Historical Museum, by welcoming museum members and guests. This year marked the museum’s Thirtieth Anniversary, established in March 1987. Three past presidents were in attendance: Ed Johann, the first president, Jean Majoska, the longest serving president, and Danell Martin. Executive Director Anne Hall recounted the history of the museum, including memorable events, and highlighted the contributions of individuals, whose vision and hard work led to the establishment of the museum and contributed to its on-going success. Several of those individuals, including founders and longtime volunteers, were honored with plaques, acknowledging their service, including: Jim and Evelyn Phelps, Ed Johann, Jean Majoska, and Danell and Larry Martin. The plaques will be mounted throughout the museum in appropriate locations.
Voting by the membership resulted in the election, or re-election, of five members to three-year terms as regular Members of the Board of Directors: Craig Anderson, Doug Force, C.T Holman, Larry Martin, and Nick Simpson. Unfortunately, Nick will not be able to continue as a Board Member because of unanticipated developments. We are
fortunate that he will continue to volunteer as museum Registrar and glass float expert. The Board also elected its officers for the new fiscal year, beginning July 1, 2017.
NLCHM officers are:
- Mick McLean, President
- C.T Holman, Vice-president
- Richard Hawkins, Treasurer
- Larry Martin, Secretary
