Letter from our new president.

Posted by AgawamHistoricalAssocation on June 11, 2016 at 1:10 PM Comments comments (0)

Dear Members:


I am very pleased to be the next president of the Agawam Historical Association and to follow in the footsteps of Marilyn Curry. She has been a dedicated and faithful leader and I am sure I will seek her counsel often.


I grew up in Granville and went to high school in Southwick. I received my BA from Saint Michael’s College and my MBA from UMass Boston. I am currently a Commercial Credit Analyst at Freedom Credit Union and have been a resident of Agawam for sixteen years. I am married to my husband Mike and we have two beautiful cats, Casey & Nicky.


I started my relationship with the AHA as a member after attending the annual banquet as a guest of Grace Tilden about six years ago. I worked on the Native American exhibit for the Firehouse Museum and volunteered at the Thomas Smith House. I plan to continue working at both locations. With the help of the board members, I hope I can bring the Association forward to provide fundraising programs such as the 5K race in 2017, spearheaded by Grace Tilden, to reduce the loan on the Thomas Smith House.


With the assistance of the membership, I plan to continue to organize activities for both the Firehouse Museum and Thomas Smith House. Also I look forward to finding ways to increase our membership to ensure the growth and sustainability of the Association. I hope we can work together as a group toward these



Thank you,


Sue Scantlen


AHA President
