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.
If necessary, meetings and programs are presented via an online platform, such as Zoom, to meet social distancing requirements mandated during the current pandemic.
