Denmark Historical Society thanks Sean McGrath and the Highland Steet Foundation for its continued support.
The members of the board of directors of Denmark Historical Society wish to thank the Birch Cove Fund and Maine Community Foundation for its continued support of the projects to protect the contents of the archives.
Recently the society was awarded a grant of $5000.00 to continue its work.
The society has been fortunate to receive past grants which have enabled the society to digitize most of the collection and purchase supplies to protect individual items.
Thank you to Nestlé for the recent gift of $2,000.00 to further the work of the historical society. The gift will help us to continue to collect, protect and share the history of Denmark with the community.
Recently the historical society was gifted with a safe from Nestlé Waters North America. We are now able to store delicate, fragile items, along with digital storage of our collection.
The historical society thanks Terry Rhoads, for spending a day moving the safe to its new home. Thank you to C. M. Nichols Landscaping – Chris and Mark and their equipment loaded the safe from its former home into the truck that transported the safe to Denmark. Joe Wist’s tractor was used to unload the safe from the truck and moved to the library’s entrance. Nick Rehmert and Stephen Glasgow assisted Terry for the day with moving the safe to the library and its new home in the archive. Thank you to Nestlé Waters North America for this wonderful gift which will protect valuable items for the historical society.
We thank Denmark Public Library for allowing the safe to be located in the book sale area.
In the past year Nestlé, known locally as Poland Spring Water, has gifted the Denmark Historical Society with used office equipment. We are now able to store items in our collection in file cabinets, shelves, desk and chair. And a safe to protect valuables.
We are now in the process of reorganizing the archives with the file cabinets. We have a desk for our new computer system. With the safe the historical society is able to store its film, portable drives holding thousands of images and other fragile items. With the file cabinets allows the archive to expand its storage capabilities and to have safer storage solution.
Many thanks to Nestlé Waters North America for the continued support to the historical society.
The board of directors of Denmark Historical Society are pleased to announce that the historical society has been awarded a grant from the Highland Street Foundation and David McGrath to further its goals of data collection, digitization and outreach.
Board members are excited to be able to continue its work to collect, protect and share the history of Denmark with the community.
With the funds the historical society purchased a computer, printer, scanner, a 50” television, a laptop computer, and a sound system. The equipment is set up in the archives and meeting room of Denmark Public Library.
Charles Linden set up the hardware. Many thanks for the hours spent to set up the equipment!
The first event for the public using the television, laptop and sound system is the book club movie and book discussion with The Color Purple by Alice Hoffman, a Denmark Public Library event.
We wish to thank David McGrath from Highland Street Foundation for generously donating funds to be used for data collection, digitization, and outreach (audio-visual equipment) projects. With this generous gift the Highland Street Foundation has helped us move forward in providing the public future access to Denmark Historical Society’s collection.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
