What’s New?

Board of Directors Update

At the annual WHS membership meeting on

Nov. 11, 2017, a new president and vice-president

were elected. Pam Myers, WHS member since 2002 and VP of the society in 2006, stepped

down following ten years of volunteer service as President of the organization. She is especially

proud of the success of the history museum project and the support it has received with energy

and enthusiasm from the board and WHS members, community organizations, and citizens.

Jeff Magnuson, a WHS member since 1993, stepped up from his 2-year V.P. role to become

President. An area resident since 1965, Jeff is a 1972 Mound grad and local historian. His Then

and Now presentation of Mound history and annual summer boat tours during Spirit of the Lakes

have been popular events. Jeff and his wife Michelle reside on Halsteads Bay.

Debi Heitz is the new V. P. She grew up in Island Park and is a 1973 Mound graduate.

Debi has been an active member of WHS since 2004, coordinating events including Minnetrista

Days, Mound’s Farmer’s Market, Spirit of the Lakes, Remembering Island Park celebration, Gillespie Center Boutique, raffles and numerous fundraisers.
