In case you were wondering what I did this weekend I thought I would show you. I spent the entire two days plus all day yesterday working on the memory book for the year for the EG Newcomer's and Friends Club. That's what the historian duties are. Snap pictures throughout the year at events, collect them from group leaders and do your best to make a book out of all of it. One to present to the President as her own and one for the archives. This year will be the first time that the archive copy will actually be on a CD and not a hard copy. Wish me luck with that one!

The first step was to get all the pictures organized and in some kind of order.

I started with a smaller memory book and didn't like that I couldn't fit much on a page so I switched to one of the memory books I use myself for our family pictures. Worked much better for me.

Now how to set the book up? I didn't want to run from the first to the last month. I decided to break everything into categories such as, The Board Members at Work, Groups at Play, Luncheon Moments, Cork n Fork Moments, etc. I'm satisfied with the way it turned out. I hope the President of the group is.

I will be attending the last two luncheons before our year ends and perhaps another Cork n Fork dinner so I will be snapping pictures and adding them to the album as well. Then I will present the hard copy to the President in June. I will bring the hard copy to the next luncheon so people can view it and also help me with names of people I have forgoptten. So many people and I do not see all of them that often.
What's that you ask? Am I going to be Hoistorian again next term? The answer is........NO! I did not accept the nomination this year. Nor the nomination for First Vice President.
