Historic Gold Hill Annual Membership Meeting Set for Monday

The Annual Membership Meeting of the Historic Gold Hill and Mines Foundation, Inc. will be held on Monday evening February 3, 2020 at the Russell-Rufty Shelter in Gold Hill Mines Historic Park.  This year commemorates 30 years of restoration efforts at Gold Hill. In May of 1990 a small group made up of members of the Gold Hill Community met to discuss the possibilities of a community-wide event to celebrate the history of the once famous gold mining town. The event garnered a lot of attention and resulted in the eventual development of the Historic Gold Hill and Mines Foundation, Inc.  The foundation was granted a 501(c) 3 non-profit status and held the first Charter meeting in January 1992.

Members and non-members are invited to attend Monday’s meeting. Committee members will present reports of the past year’s activities with a special report of the Gold Hill Men’s Club’s activities and fund raising efforts, given by past historic  foundation president, Edwin Hammill.

Preservation awards will be presented along with the Ervin McCulloch Service Award to members who have exhibited exceptional support and service to the foundation.  A social hour with refreshments will follow the meeting.

Gold Hill Mines Historic Park is located at 735 St. Stephens Church Road, Gold Hill, NC. For more information check the website at www.historicgoldhill.com or call 704-267-9439.

Victory 45!

 

The Rowan Museum and the Rowan Public Library have allied together to launch a six-month campaign of lectures and events to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II called Victory 45! The goal of Victory 45! is to raise awareness of and educate Rowan County citizens about the massive sacrifices made by our ancestors between 1941 and 1945.

 

Aaron Kepley, Executive Director of Rowan Museum states, “’Victory 45! is an exciting way to engage with the local community to learn more about World War II through lectures and sharing local stories. The line-up of speakers and events that we have cover many aspects of the war and some things that many may not know much about. We are really indebted to the Rowan Public Library for helping us with this project and getting these stories out to the local community.”
