Minutes of Meeting of Executive Commitee

Coppell Historical Society

August 9, 2011


Officers present:  Barbara Lee, Pat Quinlan, Pete Wilson, Dave Murph.

Also present:  Jackie Parrish, Paul Lorrain, Jean Murph


Volunteers gathered to have a work session to assemble and organize our historical photo collection.  Pete Wilson has finished digitizing all photos in our possession that were not yet incorporated into our permanent collection, with the exception of about half the photos copied from the Brooks family album.


Since all members of the Executive Committee were present, a quick meeting was called to discuss the following item:


The reconstruction of the road in old town Coppell is scheduled to begin earlier than expected, possibly in October.  At various times, W. Bethel Road between the legs of S. Coppell Road, will be made one-way, and traffic will be diverted until the new road is completed.


The Old Town Merchants Association and the Farmers’ Market group are planning a festival on the last weekend before the road is changed for construction, on October 8.  The Historical Society can be included in the festival, most likely to help with activities near Charles Chance’s gift shop.  Plans were made to include the Society in this festival.  Additional planning will take place as the event gets closer.


The next meeting of the Coppell Historical Society will be on Saturday, September 10.
