History [in the] Making

(As published in the October/November/December 2009 Tam-A-Gram.)

Last year, we featured an article highlighting Tamarac’s 45th Anniversary — another year has passed and as we march toward our 50th in 2013, we’re asking our residents for their help in preserving Tamarac’s history.

We’re in the process of recruiting volunteers for the newly formed Tamarac Historical Society — we need your help to preserve our past.

Not only do we need volunteers, but we’re also looking for historical items such as: photographs, videos, sales brochures, restaurant menus, street signs, pamphlets, and much more — anything with historical significance (or the potential for historical significance in the future) and items that should be kept for posterity — items that show the changes and growth of our City through the past 46 (or so) years.

In addition to items of historical significance, we’re also looking for testimonials; interesting stories and facts from long-time residents.

Tamarac’s Historical Society will be a volunteer group comprised of residents from the community with a staff liaison.

We need your help...
Do you have organizational skills, enjoy history, want to pass on your knowledge and stories, or have items to donate? If so, call Chad Quinn, Public Information Specialist, at (954) 597-3523 to volunteer or for more information.
