June, 2020

As the new Executive Director of the New Castle Historical Society, I am pleased to join an organization dedicated to not only preserving history but bringing history alive through thought-provoking and creative programs and events.

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed daily life for everyone, and the New Castle Historical Society is no exception. I will be working with our dedicated Board of Trustees to re-imagine how we can continue to provide programs and be a community resource as we increasingly need to move to virtual and online content. Our first such endeavor is the Collecting Community Stories project. How will future generations learn about this extraordinary time in history and its impact on our lives? Our collective stories will be the history that is researched an taught in years to come. If you would like to know more about the project and how to participate, please follow the link https://www.newcastlehs.org/education/special-project-collecting-community-stories/.

Thank you for your support!

Jennifer Plick, Executive Director
