The York Sunbury Historical Society has started its annual Fall membership drive!! I would like to give our current membership a big thank you for a tremendous year!
York-Sunbury Historical Society aims to collect, preserve and interpret historical data, records and objects relating to the history of the province of New Brunswick, and in particular that of York and Sunbury Counties. This is accomplished through the activities of the Society and by operating the Fredericton Region Museum.
In 2016, the York Sunbury Historical Society and Fredericton Region Museum hosted several incredible museum day camps and opened its Canada150 exhibit! We gave tours to hundreds of children as well as English Language Program classes. We hosted two incredible artists during the summer and hosted another fun-filled open house.
The Society hosted several informative lecture programs, honoured C. Mary Young for her work preserving our botanical past, presented Robert Guthrie with a Curator Emeritus Award and recognized several members for their published works.
The Society is publishing the Arts & Entertainment Issue of the Officers’ Quarters, it was sent for design this week. It will feature several articles about cultural organizations, musicians and artists. We are looking forward to mailing copies to our members.
Individual or Institutional Membership $35
Friend $100– $299 ($45 family membership & tax receipt for remaining amount)
Companion $300 – $499 ($45 family membership & tax receipt for remaining amount)
All YSHS memberships include a subscription to the journal Officers’ Quarters and free admission to the Fredericton Region Museum.
As the YSHS is a registered charity and can issue tax receipts for eligible donations made to our society. Gifts from individual or corporate donors are welcomed. Official tax receipts for gifts will be issued. The Charities Division says that donors cannot benefit in more than a nominal way from their own gifts. That means that no receipts may be given for membership subscriptions. If you would like to donate additional monies, over and above your membership fees, you will be issued a tax receipt.
