At Saturday’s LCHP Annual Meeting , amendments to the organization’s ByLaws will be presented. Among the changes is a new mission statement which reads,” LCHP’s mission shall be to collect, preserve, and interpret the heritage and history of those African Americans who created, lived in, and/or had association with the Lakeland community of Prince George’s County, Maryland from the late 19th century to the present.” 

Both the current and proposed ByLaws are posted on LCHP’s website, www.LakelandCHP.com.  The  changes will be introduced and discussed during the Annual Meeting and may be considered for adoption during the April 16, 2011 Quarterly Meeting.
