LACONIA — Jennifer Anderson, acting executive director of the Belknap Mill Society, addressed the members at the society's annual meeting on Feb. 22 with a 'call to action' to engage others in the community to share why the Belknap Mill is important and how signing up as a new or renewed member can help the Mill's future sustainability.
"The Belknap Mill Society survives on its members and volunteers. Becoming involved with the society through membership, volunteering on a committee or in any other way is truly what helps the Belknap Mill thrive for future generations to know both where we came from and where we are going," said Anderson.
During the annual meeting, the board of directors provided an overview of the present state of the Belknap Mill and its current financial status. In addition, the board presented David Stamps with the 2016 Outstanding Volunteer of the Year award. Tara Shore also presented an award of appreciation to Stewart Ramsey and Muriel Guillmette for their volunteering efforts in the Knitting Room.
Development Directors, Lisa Burk-McCoy and Karen Prior, presented the strategic positioning statement of the society and the current direction and goals of our capital campaign, "Industrial Evolution".
