As a member of the Historical Association of South Haven, you are an essential part of preserving and making available the historical record of the South Haven area. Now in our fifteenth year, the Historical Association is pleased that you have continued to value our efforts to preserve and promote the history of South Haven by providing the financial support that allows us to work on your behalf. This support has enabled us to continue to reach out to the schools, host programs at Hartman school, allows the use of those facilities for community events and has provided the resources to house an ever-increasing library of photos, books, artifacts, and other materials for research. Your support for the Historical Association continues to allow us to administer the lighthouse as well as the Hartman School building. During the last year we completed the work on the lighthouse and will finish the lighthouse commemorative plaza this spring. Commemorative bricks are still available. We continue to have an ever increasing demand for our services, which are expensive to provide. Thank you for being an integral part of the historical association.
We need your support! The Historical Association of South Haven relies completely on memberships to continue to provide for our mission of preserving South Haven’s history through education $30 and entertainment. Support through your membership is as little as per year and makes all that the Historical Association does possible.
Join us on May 27th from 7:00-9:00 p.m. for our Spring Open House. Our annual poster which depicts the entrance to the harbor and the lighthouse will be on display and the artist, Conrad Kaufman, will be on hand to sign posters. They will be on sale for the first time during the open house. An exhibit of photographs of the renovation of the lighthouse taken by Tom Renner has been mounted in the Lighthouse Gallery. These photos chronicle the various stages of the work required to save our lighthouse. At 7:30, a revised video presentation of the history of the light including the lighthouse renovation will be screened. Check your enclosed summer events card for more details.
The Open House kicks off our summer events – and we hope to see you at every one! Please consult the enclosed reminder card and make plans to join us. Don’t miss the opportunity to be a part of this important journey. Just complete the membership form attached to the return envelope. We are a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization which allows your dues to be tax deductible. With your help, it’s sure to be another splendid year.
