The Heritage Commission is trying 10 help ch,mgc that. In
2008, we will discontinue <)u r anm",] academic symposium,
responding 10 your requests for more smillJ workshops
and programs on prilctic,tl subjfftS. We will continue
to parlnl'r with other not-for-profit agencies to provide
infomml workshops and Hproblem-solving" programs on
cunt'"! history issue> for our constituenb. In doing thiS,
we ho[>(, to provide more opportunities for you to meet
and work with your neighbors in the hihlory community,
Building p"rtncrships is a rewarding way to maximize.
limited progrilm budgets and to build community strength
through networking. When we partner with other nOn-
profit organizMions, both <lgencie.< benefit. The Heritage
Commission 3nd the Morris County Histori,al Society
can $eveml years of succes/;ful partnering 10 provide
public programs. In 2007, Ih!! two org'lIli7..atlons mel 10

fannat Our effort has resulted in
two interaClive Uwundtablc" St.'SSions since March, with
several marc phoned for 2008 and beyond. The Boontoo
Historical Sociely and thc Montville Township Histori-
cal Socicly ftequi'ntly programs; combining
forces allows them to bring in top-drawer speakers and
draw an audience from surrounding communities.
