Quote of the Week
“We’re non-profit and it’s definitely showing.”
- Wendy Zack  
- on the Historical Society’s   
financials at their AGM   


The Crowsnest Historical Society, which operates the Crowsnest Museum, has new faces on the board after a well-attended annual general meeting on Sunday, February 21, held at the Coleman Seniors’ Centre.
In anticipation of this meeting, all of the former board members resigned and those who wished to be on the board put their names up for re-election by the membership, along with new faces throwing their names into the ring. The society aimed to elect a new nine-member board, with three people serving a one-year term, three serving a two-year term, and three serving a three-year term.
More than 50 people attended the meeting. A total of thirteen people put their names in as candidates for the nine board spots –– Bruce Decoux, Stephanie Hamilton, Don Harvey, John Salus, George Wesko, Joanne Wilson, Kevin Turner, Claire Allum, Donna Kubian, Dean Ward, Henry Bruns, Lennie MacIsaac, and Bill Paton.
The present society members voted three times, once for each term limit, plus an extra final vote to resolve a tie between Hamilton and Turner. The membership selected Bruce Decoux, Don Harvey, and Joanne Wilson for three-year terms; Claire Allum, Donna Kubian, and John Salus for two-year terms; and Henry Bruns, Bill Paton, and Stephanie Hamilton for one-year terms.
Donna Kubian, who has served as president of the society in recent years, reported on the museum’s activities in 2009. The museum was involved in the Heritage Festival, the Harvest of Memories, the Morency centennial exhibition, the CSI Museum event, and a number of fundraising efforts. With grant money decreasing from numerous sources, she said, they have worked to cut costs while increasing revenues and fundraising.
The financial report indicated that while the society made approximately $10,000 more in revenue from various sources compared to 2008, overall the total value of its assets declined by approximately $11,000.
