2017 will be an exciting year for the Hoover Historical Society!

On January 23rd, newly elected Mayor Frank Brocato will give the annual State of the City address to the Friends of Hoover at Capers on Park Avenue.

We will host an Open House at our Archive/Office as well as the Folklore Center following the meeting.

This is a rare chance for the public to view these spaces and learn more about the Hoover Historical Society. Our new Curator, Liz Wells, will help us spruce up the archives for the Open House and will assist us in developing a collection plan and institute ways to protect our materials in the Archive over the coming months. The public is welcome to the Friends of Hoover luncheon and joining in the tours.

We are happy to announce that a ramp has been installed at the Folklore Center to make it accessible to all.

Over 25 notecard sets and/or history books were purchased for use as Christmas gifts. Remember these are available year-round. The Spring Trip committee met and Jimmy Langley will finalize our plans for an exciting trip in April.

Tom Bailey and I met with Erin Colbaugh, Hoover’s Event Coordinator, to suggest activities for Hoover's 50th Anniversary. Hospitality Chairman, Sue Knopf, has secured the historic Hoover-Randle house for our Membership Tea this year.

We will be asking for your help in making projects for Hoover's 50th Anniversary. Mark these important dates on your calendar:

  • January 17, HHS General Meeting at the Hoover Library;
  • January 23, Friends of Hoover and HHS Open House starting at 11 AM;
  • April 6 Spring Trip;
  • April 29 Celebrate Hoover! Day and 50th Anniversary Celebration; and
  • May 21 HHS Membership Tea 2-4PM at the Hoover-Randle Home.

See you in 2017!
