    RHS FOUNDERS

    The first meeting of the Redmond Historical Society was called to order at 1:00 PM by Naomi Hardy, acting president. Twenty-two people attended the meeting. Naomi Hardy introduced Miguel Llanos who was acting treasurer and Margaret Wiese who was acting secretary. Attendees then introduced themselves and spoke briefly about their interests. An informal discussion followed. Charles Payton talked about forming an historical society. Articles of incorporation must be filed with the state to qualify for status as a non-profit group. Then a mission (general purpose of the group) and a vision for its future should be developed. Naomi Hardy suggested that specifics of this be discussed at the next meeting. And the rest was, as they say, history.

    The Redmond Recorder News was once the name of Redmond's local newspaper. It was replaced by the Sammamish Valley News, which later folded. We've since adopted The Redmond Recorderas the name for our newsletter, published 9 times a year since 1999. We have archived copies going back to the first newsletter published, May 1999 (see list below).
