On Saturday, February 9, 2019, the WTHS conferred the honor of “Honorary Membership” to Ruth Reed and Eleanor Taormina at the annual meeting held at the WT Library. Ruth Reed and her late husband Murray have been members of the WTHS for many years. Ruth was always willing to help with Society projects such as the annual book sale. The Reed’s home was on the Annual Historic House Tour twice. They donated the Parlor Organ which is housed in the museum and the Adam Finger high chair. Eleanor Taormina also volunteered her home twice for the Annual Historic House Tour. She served as president for three years and has served many years on the Board of Trustees. Eleanor was the driving force behind the stabilization of the Union Church Ruins and worked tirelessly from 2006 until the stabilization and renovations were completed in 2010. She is also a member of the Craft Group and has been a willing volunteer in Society activities. We wish to thank them both for their time, effort and dedication to the mission of the WTHS!
