December 31 – A Special Thank You

Thank You

Thursday, December 31, 2015

When I proposed the idea of writing 365 unique stories to commemorate Troy’s 60th anniversary year, many said it was a foolish goal. Twelve months later, I am pleased and proud to be part of a team that completed the 365 Project as envisioned. We hope that you have found the stories informative and enlightening and that we have piqued your interest in history. Our website and Facebook reports indicate that on any given day a story was viewed a few hundred to over 3,000 times! Hopefully our readers and friends also learned more about the many programs offered at the Village and chose to participate in them. We invite each of you to become a Villager in 2016.

A number of people have asked, “What will you do with all of this great material? Will you compile it in a book?” Please know that we are considering an appropriate next step for the 365 stories. Equally important, in January, 2016 (the Troy Historical Society’s Jubilee Year) we will begin a Village Blog with weekly posts by staff and guest contributors. So don’t stop visiting our site!

Finally, below is a list of the staff and volunteers who contributed time, research, and writing skills to the 365 Project and the stalwart crew who uploaded all of the stories to the web. I am deeply grateful to each of them.

 

Happy New Year!

To commemorate the City of Troy’s 60th Anniversary in 2015, we will publish a different story each day that highlights a person, discovery, or event that occurred locally, regionally, nationally, or even globally between 1955 and 2015 and that helped shape our lives and our community. We will try to post stories on important anniversary dates, but we also realize that dates are less critical than content and context. We will include the facts related to controversial stories, allowing our readers to form their own opinions. We invite you to read and comment on the stories. Your suggestions for topics are also welcome and can be posted on our Facebook page, www.facebook.com/TroyHistoricVillage. You can also email stories or ideas to the 365 Story Editor at ed@thvmail.org.
