Every third Saturday at 10:00 am, the Saturday Morning Coffee Hour is a good time to meet members of the organization, learn a little more about the society, village and museum, and just enjoy a cup of coffee and a delicious home-made pastry of the makers choice. Seconds are as good as the first.
Chat sessions are held monthly from September through May on the third Tuesday at 1:00 pm. Light refreshments are served. Non-members are invited to attend and participate. Topic to be discussed is listed in the event notification. The sessions are recorded for the society’s archives.
