Having trouble getting a quorum monthly, we have a 7 member board with only 5 members. Please send Frank Lyman, Town Administrator a note saying you would be interested in joining us. We meet the third Tuesday each month, rm 22. in town hall. If you would like to join us at any time you can without committing, by being a non voting member.
Do you have Whitman memorabilia hanging around, pictures of homes, old buildings, stories to tell? Whitman Historical Commission is interested. Don't throw them away, bring them to us, let us know about them. Please pm me and I will pick up.
At long last our survey of historic resources is available for all to see.

Hi - I got a wonderful call yesterday - "The GAR Hall had a fire - and burnt to the ground" (That's where the Senior Center is). The town hall has never had a fire. Mystery solved, thanks Tony
So excited, found an engraver to do the Boston Post Cane's, I feel a trip to Concord N.H. (that's where he's from) in my future. Oh, by the way - he just wants publicity in exchange. Can't wait.
Poster found in town hall, hope to have it preserved and framed. It was the sale of a building behind the town hall, the building needed to be removed from the site by May 1, 1912.
Public Archeology Laboratory, PAL is busy doing surveys - the first couple look great. The ones we looked at were - The Corthell building, the fire station, and the Regal building. Can't wait to see the finished products.
