Upcoming Events

Membership Meeting


The annual membership meeting was held Saturday January 20, 2024 at the society headquarters 416 Weldon Street. Doors opened at 10:30. The meeting started at 11:00.

Following a brief business session, we presented a very special program titled:

"Mr. Rogers - In His Own Words"

(a 1991 taped interview with Fred Rogers).

We listened to Mr. Rogers himself talk about his family and life growing up in Latrobe. The narration was accompanied by family photos and pictures from our files.


The meeting was open to historical society members only. Refreshments were served following the program. As always, new members were welcome.
