   Our Program Calendar

   For each meeting we arrange for a speaker to present a topic of historic interest. Popular programs                 of the past include: Great storms of the Chesapeake Bay; Victorian clothing; Colonial quilts and                       their meaning; Covered bridges in Maryland; Reflections of an Army nurse serving in Vietnam; and                   Using archaeology to bring local history to life.

   Meetings are usually held the second Saturday of the month; no meetings in December, June, July or             August.
