To all of our Heritage supporters and members:

Happy Holidays!

I attended the Snohomish County Historical Commission meeting Tuesday nite
(Dec 17) to hear about the projects that were funded through the 2013
Community Heritage grants program this year.
Presenters included representatives from of the 6 recipients of the grants
this year:

Edmonds - South Snohomish County Historical Society Director Tarin Erickson
described how they used the funds to create their 40th Anniversary exhibit, *40
for 40: Forty years of artifacts from the museum's collection*, digitize
more than a hundred newspaper pages, and create an online exhibit at
historicedmonds.org.   The primary goal of this project was to create two
dynamic exhibits – physical and online – and educate visitors about the
preservation responsibilities for the artifacts in the museum’s collection.
 These funds allow staff to continue to care for and share the museum’s
artifacts as well as teach visitors about important preservation standards.
 The online exhibit will be a permanent fixture on the museum's web site,
and content will change periodically.

*Thanks to the Snohomish County Heritage Commission* for supporting these
important projects - the projects make excellent use of these funds and
leveraging exceptional volunteer efforts to move their projects forward.

More to follow on the other recipients in future emails.
