These events start at 7pm in the Crocker Memorial Church. They are FREE to Historical Society members and $10 at the door for nonmembers. Bring your friends and participate in lively and informative discussions.  Bidwell-Wood House is open beginning at 6pm for touring before the meetings.

If just 2 or 3 meetings in our season intrigue you, you might as well become a member. Besides, we love members!
