November Meeting Update

We meet in the Card Room at 9:30AM the third Friday of each month and invite any resident to attend a meeting to help decide if they want to become a member.

This month we meet on November 17 with the program being several interesting stories about some of our member's ancestors. They often tell how a relative was involved with an historical event or maybe a well known historical figure. Some are amusing, some are dramatic but all make for an interesting program.

We will also hold an election for 2018 officers.

If you would like to meet some interesting people who just love to greet new friends, visit with us.

October Meeting Update

We meet in the Card Room at 9:30AM the third Friday of each month and invite any resident to attend a meeting to help decide if they want to become a member.

This month we meet on October 20th with the program being a video provided by Family Search on 'Find A Grave: Best Practices'. Most of us know where our most recent relatives are buried. However, finding the graves of our people 2 or 3 generations back, or more, is often a much more daunting task.

The nominating committee will also present us with the slate of officers for 2018 in preparation for the election to be held in November.

If you would like to check us out this will be an opportune meeting to do so and meet interesting people who just love to get over those 'brick walls' created by a lack of information.
