Thank you to all for your support
Letter to the Editor from Myron Freedman
-- As 2012 draws to a close, the Hayward Area Historical Society (HAHS) wishes to thank everyone for supporting local history and the HAHS.
The New Year promises to be exciting for HAHS members as we anticipate opening our new facility on Foothill Boulevard. The HAHS Center for History and Culture will be a resource for local history, education and fun. It will be a place to find stories about the diverse people who make the area what it is today and a gathering place for a wide range of activities that contribute to the cultural life of all who live here.
The new Center will be a home for everyone's history. In the History Gallery, you will find Your Story, an exhibit of our area's history told through personal stories we have collected from local residents. The Temporary Exhibit Gallery will feature changing exhibitions on a variety of historical and cultural topics and the Children's Gallery will offer fun and engaging hands-on learning activities for curious youngsters.
Since 1957, HAHS has shared community history and strengthened education in local schools, but we cannot do it alone. Only with the generosity of donors, can HAHS continue to grow and preserve the community's heritage. Donors who give more than $100 to the HAHS Center for History and Culture Campaign will be acknowledged on the Campaign Recognition Wall, a wall display in the museum's entry hall. We need everyone's support to ensure the development of the Center, new exhibitions and educational programs and to secure HAHS for generations to come.
From all of us at HAHS, we wish you a very happy Holiday Season and a New Year filled with peace and prosperity
Hayward Area Historical Society
