SOUTHWICK – The Southwick Historical Commission is short one member and is currently looking to fill that vacancy.
The five-member committee has been short one person since last spring and filling up that vacancy is important.
“You really need an odd number of people for voting purposes,” said Southwick Historical Commission member Dave Gunn.
Gunn would like to see an individual that has a passion for history but maybe someone that’s younger and can bring a different perspective.
“It would be nice to get some younger blood in the group to help bring in some younger people,” said Gunn.
The Southwick Historical Commission deals with all sorts of historical items and features in town. Recently, the commission has been helping preserve the historical contents of the Old Library, working with the Town Clerk office to look up archives of old documents, and trying to relocate the old Southwick Country Club building.
The Historical Commission meets the first Monday of the month at 7 p.m. at the Southwick Town Hall. Anyone interested in joining the Historical Commission is encouraged to attend a meeting. Individuals can also call the Historical Commission at blank if they’re interested, or contact the committee on their Facebook page. The need for another member is also posted on the committee’s page on the Town of Southwick website.
Individuals are required to be a registered voter in Southwick and a town resident to join the Commission.
