Target demographics: CCHPS serves all of the people of Charlevoix County, Michigan by preserving the past for the future.

Someone who had 3 hours of volunteer time could: * Capture the stories of one of our older citizens, ensuring that they won't be lost - we'll provide the recorder and a set of questions for you to ask!
* Edit the quarterly newsletter
* Scan 100 pages of historic township records so they can be preserved
* Transcribe 10 historic newspaper articles for the Undine book

Geographic areas served: Charlevoix County, Michigan and surrounding areas

Programs: * Oral history - capture and preserve the unique and valuable memories of our elder citizens
* Preservation of public records - township records are deteriorating, and some are lost forever. They have information about the early settlers of the county that can't be found anywhere else. We digitize them and make them available to the public.
* Public education - through our speaker series, our publications, special events, and workshops, we increase public awareness of and enjoyment of history
* Undine -- we are amassing information, photographs, maps, documents, and newspaper accounts about this long-lost settlement

Mission:
To promote an understanding and appreciation of the heritage of the people of Charlevoix County and its
townships by searching out, collecting,
preserving, and interpreting artifacts of historical
and cultural significance
Results:
In the past year, the organization:
* Presented 7 public educational programs on topics of historical interest
* Collaborated with other organizations to present 2 programs
* Published 4 quarterly newsletters with original articles and news items
* Nearly doubled our membership
* Worked with Boyne City officials to save the 1910 Water Works Building and to obtain $340,000 in federal grants for the project
* Salvaged materials from the "Lennie Campbell" home in Charlevoix prior to its destruction, to be used in preservation projects throughout Northern Michigan
* Published the 24-page booklet "Lennie's Monument"
