We meet in the main conference room, Room 108 at the Cooper Memorial Library except in December when we meet at a restaurant. Subjects generally deal with history, genealogy, members experiences or other appropriate subject.

Last Meeting Mar 12:  Joanie Holzer Schirm told us the amazing story of what was reveled to her in 400 letters from 78 people who corresponded with her father before and during WWII. She found them saved by her father and she began the full time task of going through them all and locating the writers and their descendants, all of whom had fled German domination. Go here
