A THANKS FOR 30 YEARS OF PRESERVING WHITEWATER'S HISTORY 9/8/2017 8:58:53 AM
Mac Coughlin is being honoured by his township for the work he's done over the years to preserve local history. Coughlin, who created the Whitewater Historical Society and started Ross Museum in Foresters Falls, was presented with a certificate at Wednesday night's (Sept 6) Whitewater council meeting by Mayor Hal Johnson. He also spent 30 years volunteering to preserve the area's history.
Coughlin says that lots of work went into creating the museum, and it's nice to see the payoff.
Coughlin also commented to council that he would like to see the township step in and run the historical society. He says he doesn't think it is being run properly and that the society is getting close to running out of money.
