BHS Member Newsletter Wins 2019 Kevin M. Hale Award

BORDENTOWN — The Bordentown Historical Society is very proud to receive the League of Historical Societies of New Jersey’s Kevin M. Hale Publications Award for 2019 for the Fall 2019 / Winter 2020 BHS Member Newsletter

The League of Historical Societies of New Jersey, founded in 1966, is composed of over 220 organizations that represent over 45,000 individual members. While most of the organizations in the League are local historical societies, it also includes statewide societies and related institutions, county agencies, museums, libraries and archival groups, historic preservation agencies, and a variety of other organizations devoted to and interested in New Jersey history.

The members of the League share information and ideas about their activities and their problems, and about the work of other groups engaged in saving New Jersey history, county by county, and town by town. They conduct cooperative activities to advance preservation and knowledge of the history of New Jersey. 

The award announcement was made in the LHSNJ’s 2020 April letter viewable here: 2020_April_League_newsletter (5)

This accomplishment was led under the dedication and direction of BHS Art Director, Kristi Kantorski. BHS Co-President Tim Rollender offered, “We are grateful to Kristi for sharing her dedication, talent and vision to create so much value for our members and add so much vibrancy to our history. We appreciate the recognition from the League and their efforts to promote history in our State.”
