For years, the Greendale Historical Society has tried to preserve and foster appreciation for Greendale.
On Feb. 12, it will be the Historical Society itself that will be appreciated.
The Greendale Historical Society has been selected as the Greendale Chamber of Commerce’s member of the year, and will be recognized at the annual awards banquet next month.
The Historical Society, which has 330 members, was founded in 1976 to collect, preserve and make available materials relating to Greendale’s history. The society holds quarterly meetings that are open to the public and feature a variety of informative presentations, and the society participates in all Village of Greendale activities and functions.
The non-profit volunteer organization has elected officers and a board of directors. Its current community project is to plan, secure funds for, and oversee the adaptive restoration of the Historic Greendale Grounds Building and Hose Tower into a community center with public restrooms, indoor and outdoor gathering spaces, and other facilities.
The Greendale Chamber of Commerce annual awards banquet is 5:30 p.m. Feb. 12, at Joey Gerard’s. The cost is $50, and reservations are required.
