Thank you for your support of MTHS. With your help, the Mequon Thiensville Historical Society has grown to include over 200 voting members. Major contributors have included Sommer's Motors, Van and Susan Mobley, The Mequon Community Foundation, former Mequon Mayor Connie Pukaite, and the Mequon-Thiensville Sunrise Rotary Club. More recent benefactors include the Cedarburg Auction Company and Anderson Painting. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and all donations, including membership dues, are fully tax deductible.
We are very pleased to welcome two new board members as well as a new ex-officio board member. Paul Schreiber and Jenny Hamm, both from Mequon, have joined our board as members at large. In addition, Mark Brunner, the business manager of Logemann Community Center has joined our board as a non-voting, ex-officio member.
Our member Roy Wetzel recently sent us a link to a SILENT MOVIE documenting the construction of the Mequon Town Hall and Fire Department as a WPA project in the 1930's. To view that video, please go to http://vp.telvue.com/preview?id=T01547&video=227641
If you are a longtime Thiensville-Mequon resident, you will especially enjoy seeing the many people involved and named in the video.
