The annual membership meeting will be held Saturday January 21, 2023 at the society headquarters 416 Weldon Street. Doors open at 9:30. The meeting will start at 10:00.
Following a brief business session, a program will be presented by Father Maximilian Maxwell, O. S. B., the director of campus ministry at Saint Vincent College. The program will feature images of the devastating fire that destroyed some of the oldest buildings at St. Vincent sixty years ago this month. He will also explain how the college and monastery literally rose from the ashes as they rebuilt and expanded in the ensuing decades.
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.
