”Real Super Heroes supply the facts! Historians provide the memories!”

What better way to preserve history than to write down the facts as they happen!
Historians do just that, we write about happenings that will have meaning to future generations.

Unit, District, & Division Historians your mission is to submit the history of your group as we “Serve Our Veterans – The Real Super Heroes”.

Units historians, please have your Junior and Senior history submitted to the District Historian by May 24th for judging.
The Unit winners and the District and Division Histories need to be submitted to the Department Historian by June 6th.
I would love to have updates through the months on your groups activities. Please tag me on your Facebook pages or send me an email at ibergmom@gmail.com.

The End of Year Report form, Senior History Rules, and Junior History Rules links will be on the Departments website under Historian. Also links of resources from National will be available.

A Historian report should truly represent what the unit/district/division/Department accomplished. We need to list those who served as leaders and mention notable awards or individual achievements. It is not a travelogue or diary of any officer or individual’s itineraries. The content is about the group and it’s collective members mission achievements.
