Historical Society forming new chapter

Special to the Daily

The Summit Historical Society is forming its first special interest chapter (SIC) with the help of the Summit County Community and Senior Center.

The new SIC will devote itself to the interests, schedules and activities of those who utilize the Senior Center facilities at the County Commons near Frisco, board president Rick Hague said.

The historical society – whose mission is to discover, preserve, interpret and educate the public concerning the history and heritage of Summit County – is expanding its programs throughout Summit County. 

Part of this expansion is to provide programs and activities to social groups that may have special interests that are not being met through the society’s other activities. The society intends to connect with the Summit School District and the Hispanic community, according to Hague.

The first meeting of the new chapter will be at 3 p.m. Wednesday at the society’s new Silverthorne Historical Museum located in the Green Village of the Silverthorne Factory Stores adjacent to the Levi Strauss, Corral West and Bass outlet stores. 

For information, call Aleen Nyquist, the Senior Center coordinator, for the new activity, at (970) 668-8585 or the Summit Historical Society at (970) 453-9022.
