The Huntington Historical Society celebrated its 112th annual meeting at the Huntington Elks Club last month.
The celebration included a buffet dinner, and presentations were made on the society’s 2015 activities, milestones and future goals.
President Robert “Toby” Kissam welcomed the newest trustees, Chris Voulgaris, Donna Waldenburg and Anthony Vlachos to the Board of Directors, and Elizabeth Borst, who began her second term as a trustee.
Voulgaris is a lifelong Huntington resident and CPA for Certified Federal Contracts Manager. He also serves as the treasurer of Old Huntington Green.
Waldenburg has lived in Huntington for the past 34 years, volunteering her time with the local parent teacher association, educational groups and the Boy Scouts of America. She is currently the executive director of Long Island for Arts and Sciences.
Vlachos is the vice president and co-founder of The WizdomOne Group. He is active in the Huntington Township Chamber of Commerce and co-chair of the health and wellness committee to push for healthier lifestyles.
Huntington Town Historian Robert Hughes swore in the new officers in the following roles: Robert “Toby” Kissam, president; Gary Strong, first vice president; Irene Moore, second vice president; Sean Bickoff, treasurer; and Rich Reinwald, secretary.
Following the swearing-in of the officers, Volunteer of the Year awards were presented to Loring Andersen, Ginny Furman and Dorothy Keenan.
The President’s Award for Service was presented to Bill Chamberlain and Richard Holliday.
Before concluding, Kissam recognized Lucie Blohm, Susannah Meinersman and Kim Trant for their service to the Huntington Historical Society’s Board of Trustees as they finished their second three-year term and left the board of trustees.
After the meeting ended, the members were invited to walk up the street and take a tour of the new archives expansion wing at the Trade School building, which is still under construction.
