Chesapeake Region - 60th Anniversary Book
The Chesapeake Region, AACA was chartered in the year 1955. The year 2015 marked our 6oth Anniversary! To commemorate that monumental event, the Club developed a commemorative 60th Anniversary Book.
Mary Whitcraft graciously volunteered to head up a committee to develop the 60th Anniversary Book. Members interested in participating were welcomed to join the committee.
In preparation, Mary Whitcraft assembles some fellow 60th Anniversary Book Committee members to retrieve Club historical documents and photographs from the storage garage.
Craig Whitcraft, takes a look at a retrieved photo book, before loading into his truck.
With the truck loaded, the documents and boxes of photographs are ready for their trip to the Whitcraft staging area for review, and revelation of the Club's history they contain.
On 05/22/14 a group of Anniversary Book Committee members gathered at the Whitcraft garage "staging area" to review the contents retrieved from the storage garage.
Committee members Thelma Johnson, Mary Whitcraft and Mildred Lawson.
Committee members Craig Whitcraft and Chuck Talbert.
Committee members Bob Lynch and Gary Wilmer.
Committee members Gary Wilmer and Larry Butcher.
After a morning of reviewing the contents of many boxes of old photographs and binders of Club documentation, the Committee members gathered to discuss their findings, enjoy some lunch, and plan further action.
After many months of hard and creative work by Mary and the 60th Anniversary Book Committee, this labor of love is now available for Chesapeake Region members to enjoy.
And, what a masterpiece it is! Contact the Club president to obtain your copy.
At our 60th Anniversary Picnic, Mary discusses her experiences creating the 60th Anniversary Book, and the deep appreciation she developed for the Club's founding members: Willard Prentice, Ed Hook and Karl Feather.
