VIRTUAL "Show and Tell"  (Monthly Meetings)
6:30 pm

         We hope we are getting close to meeting in person, though we still can not be certain of that possibility.  Therefore, join us for this virtual event and talk about a document you've found, a story to share, a trinket, trip, or a research success.  Have fun enjoying the stories and items to be viewed.  No, we can't share all the good food this time, but come'll be fun!
          We will install our new board for the 2021-2022 society year.
