Historical society seeks new board members

The Canton Historical Society, a volunteer organization dedicated to the preservation of local historical information and resources in the township, currently has four board positions open.

Letters of interest in joining the group and serving on the board are now being accepted from township residents seeking to learn more about history, meeting other history buffs, or helping preserve the rich past of the community. The Canton Historical Society offers valuable opportunities for individuals interested in helping keep the history of Canton alive, organizers said.  Once appointed, these volunteer board members will begin a three-year term starting in 2023.  

“The Canton Historical Society looks forward to welcoming new board members to help safeguard Canton's historical identity and build on all of the educational and preservation successes that our organization has achieved to date,” said Bill Tesen, Canton Historical Society president.  “It's important to integrate fresh ideas and perspective to help effectively retain Canton's rich past for future generations to come.” 

Canton Historical Society board members will help with the preservation of artifacts, relics, documents and historic sites. The society will provide historical education to members and the public through educational, cultural and social programs and projects.
