Committees

The Manitowish Waters Historical Society has created several working committees to begin the important work of preserving and sharing historical resources. These committees represent the both most immediate needs and focus of the current board.  Importantly, the working committees will evolve over time and create a logical structure to focus the efforts of the Manitowish Waters Historical Society.

2016-17 Manitowish Waters Historical Society working committees:

Oral History - chair Janelle Kohl

Pre History - chair Jim Bokern

1600-1879 - chair Jim Bokern

Photo Records - chair Ruth Gardner

Outreach and Resources - chair John Hanson

Town Records - chair John Hanson

Inventoryand Archiving - chair Jody Miller

Cranberry Traditions - chair John McFarland

Those considering joining the Manitowish Waters Historical Society are encouraged to participate in one or more working committees.  The chairs of working committees welcome insights in guiding committee efforts and need assistance from members willing to pitch-in and do important committee work. Feel free to reach out to working committee chairs this spring to learn more about your favorite working committee!
