There are two words we seem to use more than any others when speaking about these good folks, and they are “Thank You.”
And we use them again here to note what this wonderful foundation has meant to the Lewis County Historical Society this past year and through the pandemic.
For almost one hundred years, the Northern New York Community Foundation (NNYCF) has been making history by improving the quality of life for communities in St. Lawrence, Jefferson and Lewis Counties through grants and scholarships. They have been a steadfast supporter of many Lewis County Historical Society projects and deserve a particularly heartfelt “thank you” for their support of our new website through the Michael Brown Fund – we could not have done it without them!
The NNYCF’s mission is to inspire and celebrate giving, steward resources honorably, and foster vibrant North Country communities. They do that by inspiring a spirit of philanthropy, developing relationships, acting respectfully, and honoring stewardship – all values that the Lewis County Historical Society shares.
We encourage you to take some time and explore our new website – Historically Lewis. There is new information and resources for those who want to learn more about the history of this county we call home, those who want to know where their family came from, and those who are thinking about moving here and contributing to the continuum of our local history. We hope you enjoy learning about the history of Lewis County as much as we enjoy sharing it. And once again, please join us in thanking the NNYCF for making it possible.
