Committee Meeting Report – January 11th

January 14th, 2009, by Kent Larsen

Our New York City LDS History Committee met the evening of January 11th for our normal monthly meeting. Good food and fun conversation helped us get through our agenda and make plans for the next few months. We discussed the status of our upcoming newsletter issue, the banners we have placed in the LDS buildings around the city, our walking tours, and upcoming newsletter issues and events. The principal decisions made include the following:

  • The next issue of the newsletter, the 2007 annual stake history report, will be published electronically only. Because the issue has taken so long to write and prepare, we are faced with distributing a report a year old.
  • We are still attempting to locate the banners from several buildings in the stake. Well-meaning members have apparently moved them in several cases, and it isn’t easy to locate them.
  • Committee members were urged to record the initial version of the stop of the downtown walking tour tha they have been assigned.
  • Progress continues on the next newsletter, which will cover how LDS parents have raised children in New York City. In the mean time, we are hoping to produce an issue on another subject, perhaps using material from some of the newspaper articles we have located. Kent Larsen will see if we can reprint material from enough articles to fill an issue of the newsletter.
  • We will continue to work on various publicity issues, including trying to get information about our activities on the Stake calendar, the blogs of those in the stake, email lists, and get the word out to other stakes in our area.
  • We are still looking into the possibility of a stake fireside, now possibly about the time of Stake Conference, to show the New York City LDS History video that Scott Tiffany prepared and to launch the podcast of the walking tour. By this time we hope to have prepared a permanent poster for the walking tour for each building in the stake, indicating both when the next scheduled walking tour will be held and where members can download the walking tour brochure and audio file so that they can take the tour themselves.

The next meeting is planned for February 1st.
