PARRSBORO - Changes to the structure of the Parrsborough Shore Historical Society will not change its goal of restoring Ottawa House By-the-Sea Museum. In fact, new president Colin Curleigh is hoping to sharpen that focus.
Along with the addition of new faces on the society's board of directors this year comes a new approach of carrying out its work. Responsibilities that were previously assigned to committees will now be handled by individuals.
"We have six good people who are prepared to take on the responsibilities, and, at our first board meeting, it's important to me that they were given the authority to get on with it," said Curleigh. "My experience with several boards here is that when something gets put to a committee, often it just disperses the responsibility rather than focus it."
