Upcoming Events

Membership Meeting


The annual membership meeting will be held Saturday January 20, 2024 at the society headquarters 416 Weldon Street. Doors open at 10:30. The meeting will start at 11:00.

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

"Mr. Rogers - In His Own Words"

(a 1991 taped interview with Fred Rogers).

Listen to Mr. Rogers himself talk about his family and life growing up in Latrobe. The narration is accompanied by family pictures and pictures from our files.


The meeting is open to historical society members only. Refreshments will be served following the program. As always, new members are welcome if they wish to join that morning.
