PAHS is working on a new mission statement and it is likely it will be something close to the following:

The mission of the Placentia Area Historical Society is:

To promote the study, knowledge and preservation of the history of the Placentia Area.

The following aims and objects from the by-laws will give an indication of how this mission will be fulfilled.

(a) to promote the study, knowledge and preservation of the history of the Placentia Area;
(b) to give and arrange lectures, publish books, etc. dealing with that history;
(c) to preserve records, buildings and sites which may be of historic value or interest and erect monuments or memorials commemorating or recording events of historic interest of the Placentia Area;
(d) to enter into arrangements with any governmental authorities or municipal authorities that seem conducive to the Society’s objectives and obtain from any such authority any rights, privileges or concessions, which the Society may think desirable to obtain;
(e) to do all other things necessary for the fulfillment of the aims and objectives that are legal and do not jeopardize the Society’s status as a charitable organization.
