The Town of Veteran Historical Society would like to express their condolences to the family and associates of Atty Donald Coyles. He was a great asset to our Society and helped us to establish our 501C3, Charter and By-Laws. He was a great sounding board anytime we had questions in regards to our Society, and was always willing to help us in any situation.

Atty Coyles was also my and my families personal attorney since the 1980's. He will be greatly missed.

Greetings from the Town of Veteran Historical Society.

The Town of Veteran Historical Society has made great accomplishments in the past years, all thanks to the dedicated volunteers who continue to participate in the Society's work.

Fund raising is our only source of income at this time and thanks to our Fundraising Chairman, Anita Hesser we continue to thrive. Our bake sales are a huge success for the months of April and November. We always need volunteer bakers and helpers. A new tote bag fundraiser will be launched this year in hopes of getting community donations. We continue to sell our cookbooks, throws, hats, and Christmas ornaments. Our ongoing can and bottle return helps bring money in. We ask that you return your cans and bottles and donate the money to the Society. Help us to continue our goals and help the environment at the same time.

 

We have made great progress in our goals to better The Town of Veteran Historical Society. In 11/2014, our By-laws were approved. Our Provisional Charter was approved in 4/2015. We became 501c3 tax exempt in 6/2016. The volunteers have worked long and hard to reach these goals. Now we need your help. You can now donate to the Society, money or artifacts pertaining to our town and get a tax deduction. Our area is the Town of Veteran, which includes Millport, Pine Valley and Sullivanville.  We would love you to share old pictures, artifacts or stories pertaining to our area and moneyed items would now be tax deductible for you the donor.  We are now actively working on our dream of a museum to house our many artifacts since we are now a recognized organization. We hope you will become involved in making this a reality. Any member with grant experience, or ideas please let us know about them. Please share your expertise so we can continue to "Keep the Past Present".

 

Our ongoing Cemetery Projects are doing great. Our cemeteries, not recognized by the town look fantastic, all due to the dedicated volunteers who weed whack, rake and haul brush so we can continue to honor our past residents and honor our military. This is a great project to get involved in. Anyone with Boy or Girl Scout troops or 4-H groups, all help is needed and appreciated and it is a great community service.

 

I would like to congratulate the newly elected executives of the Town of Veteran Historical Society. President, Gloria Campbell, Vice President, Tim Rodabaugh, Secretary, Shirley Lant, Treasurer, Rick Smith and Executive Committee Members at Large, Anita Hesser, Jane Palmer and JoAnn Ripley. Thank you all for your continued support.
