One Year Anniversary Event in the Visitor Centre

nov-25_1442

Whitby Historical Society celebrated its One Year Anniversary of operations at Lynde House Museum on November 24th 2016. We wish to extend sincere thanks to our 2016 supporters. The Town of Whitby; an Anonymous Donor through Durham Community Foundation ; Pickering Charities Delta Bingo and Brookfield Residential as well as our volunteers, our staff and board members.

Here are a few photographs to show you the festivities and a peak at the Christmas decorations. We especially want to thank Pickering Charities Delta Bingo funds for enabling us to create such a WOW decor.

Festivities at the Visitor Centre before and after the Tour of Lynde House.

Gloria Murkar, board member, welcomes Heather Muckle from Bowman and Gibson and Heather's daughter Avryl Muckle. We love historical tidbits and ways to honour the founders of Whitby Historical Society. Heather is the daughter-in-law of one of our founders, Constance Hope Muckle and Avryl is her granddaughter. Constance also donated many artifacts. We are sure in this the 50th Anniversary of our founding, that Constance would be very happy to hear that her family still have a keen interest in our roots.
