Happy New Year!

What a year it has been for the Clarendon Hills Historical Society. We have finally been able to move our files, furniture and artifacts back into Heritage Hall. The floor has been sealed and an epoxy finish put on to mitigate the smoke odor coming from the floor. The future projects this year will be new windows and a new front door, which should eliminate the rest of the smoke residue from the fire. Plans also call for the addition of the bathroom this year.

 

We will be holding our general elections for board members at our February meeting. We are happy that Lucia Davila will join us on the board. We are in need of one more board member and someone to take my place, as I am stepping down from my role as president in February, but will still be volunteering my time when I can. I have been privileged and honored to have served with many great and selfless volunteers on the CHHS Board. Thank you for the experience and adventure we have been on together.

 

Through the hard work of our volunteer board, we have everything in place for someone to take over the reins and be successful at steering the organization into 2017. New ideas are always welcome. I hope those of you who have an interest in keeping our history alive will consider joining the board of this worthwhile charitable group who directly serves Clarendon Hills. Meetings are held once a month. Please contact Diane Hiller at 630-915-5009 or Annette Hillman at 630-769-6502 or email us at clarendonhillshistory@gmail.com for more details.

Thanks to all of you for your monetary and moral support through the past years. Wishing you a bright and Happy 2017!

Clarendon Hills Historical Society Board,

Diane Hiller, president

Annette Hillman, vice president

Harry Hillman, treasurer

Barb Nolan, secretary

Chuck Brand, director at large

Berry DeSimone, director at large

Lucia Davila, director-elect at large

This picture of a pipe sticking out of the ground may not look like much to you, but it does to us! This pipe is our recent sewer line hook up to Heritage Hall, which will enable us to start work on the inside bathroom. A small but important step forward in our renovation.

Tonight, Wednesday, July 27th we will be at the Dancin in the Streets concert in Clarendon Hills. Come by our table for give aways and to purchase a Daisy Cash Raffle ticket for $10 dollars each. Your odds will be better than the lottery to win! We will also have old photo reproductions for sale of Clarendon Hills! Proceeds to help us with our Heritage Hall renovation.

Hope to see you there!
