With great sadness, we report that CCGS President Dan McConnell passed away suddenly on September 13, 2011. He served the Society in an outstanding manner during his presidency as well as before. His contributions, other than fine leadership, included enthusiastic recruitment of new membership, writing scholarly articles for the Society's Journal, serving as representative from the Society to the New England Regional Genealogical Consortium, providing mentoring sessions for members, and making public presentations on historical and genealogical topics, among others. Our sincere condolences are extended to his family. We express our deep appreciation for his leadership, which will be greatly missed.
The next regular meeting of the Society will still take place on Wednesday, September 21, at the Brewster Ladies Library, beginning at 10:00AM.
