It Figures, and My Figure, Too

January 20, 2011

Like many people, I?ve spent much of the first few days of
the New Year looking back at 2010.

Some of the looking back has been personal I began going
to the gym in 2010. I?ve actually lost some weight and am feeling great. I still
ate a Dunkin’ Donut at the staff meeting this morning, though.

Most of the looking back has been to review what the Local
History Services department has accomplished in our role of serving local
history organizations. We had a great year!

Here are a few fun numbers. In 2010, LHS:

  • sponsored 27 workshops around the state for local
    history practitioners
  • sent our e-newsletter, Communique
    Online
    ,
    to approximately 470 subscribers each week with
    information about exhibits, programs, resources and opportunities
  • delivered traveling
    exhibits
    through out the state that were viewed by 213,784 people
  • traveled 23,652
    miles in Indiana
    to serve local history organizations

Phew! I?m counting on 2011 being a great year, too.
