The Granite Creek Preservation Society is now hosting regular monthly meetings in Princeton Museum.
“I’m happy with the progress made to date,” says GCPS Chair George Elliott. “We launched a website that has been embraced by many and continues to grow as documents, photos and information is being shared with us.”
Elliott says the need to host regular monthly meetings was the natural next step. “I think in order to be accountable we need to have a great deal of transparency and one way of doing this is to hold public meetings,” he said.
Elliott approached Princeton Museum Operations Manager Robin Lowe and discussed the possibility of a partnership between the Museum Society and GCPS. “We have no intention to house artifacts as our main goal is to preserve what is left of Granite and to share what we know through the website,” Elliott says. “It also just made sense to me to have an arrangement with the Museum as I see both groups benefiting from working together.”
Through discussions with Lowe, Elliott was able to secure a regular ‘home’ for GCPS meetings and a place for any artifacts that many surface as a result of the website and further efforts of the Granite Creek Preservation Society.
Public meetings of GCPS are set for 1:00 PM the third Thursday of each month in the upstairs Archive Room at Princeton Museum.
