Dear HVC Members,
I hope you are all having a great start to your summer and keeping cool, or enjoying the blazing heat if that’s your thing.
We are off for the summer, so our next meeting will be on September 21, 2017. It will be a special potluck meeting to discuss the book we are reading as part of our Book Club. More details about the meeting will go out with the July and August newsletters; more details about the book club can be found below.
1.) Just another reminder to renew your MAS memberships for 2017. If you cannot recall whether you have paid your 2017 dues, shoot me an email and I will gladly let you know.
2.) Saline Salt Springs Project 2017
Interested in joining MAS volunteers to get your hands dirty and do some real archaeology yourself? Join us in Saline, MI as we excavate the site of a future park. Get in touch with Deva at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to join. You must be a current member of MAS or the Saline Historical Society to participate, and information about artifacts will not be shared with the public – you’ll have to join to see what fun things turn up!
No prior experience required. Just come prepared to work outdoors in dirt. Again, get in touch with Deva for more information. You could also email me, but I’ll likely just pass you along to her.
3.) HVC Summer Book Club
Last year we revived the ol’ HVC summer book club. Earlier this year, we decided to continue with the book club, and at April’s meeting, a book was selected! Members who would like to participate in the book club should read Searching for Golden Empires: Epic Cultural Collisions in Sixteenth-Century America by William K. Hartmann (available on Amazon and likely elsewhere) over the summer. A discussion will be held for September’s meeting.
I picked up my copy recently! There’s plenty of time to get yours and read at a leisurely pace over the summer months.
4.) Seeking Volunteers to Work HVC Table at Saline Celtic Festival, July 15, 2017
We are still seeking volunteers to work our table for two hour windows at the Saline Celtic Festival on July 15. You will receive free admission to the festival if you volunteer. Any who are interested, please get in touch with me. Thank you!
