MEET OUR BOARD MEMBERS
Unlike most on this Board I didn't grow up in the New Prague area until I moved here from Jordan in 1986. I've always had a deep interest in history and genealogy and feel that we can all add to the history of this locality and help preserve this history as a means to gauge where New Prague has come from to the present time.
My interest in local history began as chairman of New Prague's National Bi-Centennial Celebration in 1976. In 1981, our group formed the New Prague Area Historical Society. I have a keen interest in recording stories and preserving New Prague's history. My ultimate goal has been to instill a sense of pride and understanding the history of New Prague and surrounding communities.
I grew up in New Prague. Like many, I moved away, married, started a family and found my way back home. I value my deep roots and our community's rich history. Preserving memories of those who trudged the way is important to me. Documenting who we are as a group today is also important. We are Living History!
I grew up and currently reside in New Prague. I enjoy learning about the history of New Prague and the surrounding area. To me, it is fascinating to take in the progression of our community through stories from local individuals, as well as photographs and artifacts from the past.
