Letter: 50th Anniversary of Arvada Historical Society

Posted

The founder and first President of the Arvada Historical Society, Lois Lindstrom, was quite a letter writer. One of the tools she employed to help accomplish the goal at hand was the “letter to the editor.” If volunteers were needed, a letter. Solicitation of donations, another letter. Getting out the vote to create the Arvada Center, a pleading letter. Erroneous historical facts published, a stern letter!

As its current president, I’ll take a page from her playbook and urge all Arvadans to support the organization she founded and that has contributed so much to Arvada. We are a membership organization and, to mark our 50th anniversary, we are offering 50% off new first year memberships. You can join for as little as $7.50 at historyarvada.org this month. You may also make donations there. Your support fuels this volunteer run organization to keep our history alive.

Karen Miller, president of Arvada Historical Society
