NO JULY OR AUGUST MEETINGS

at the library, but the July 7 program

will be presented by Zoom!

Our July 7 speaker, Ginger Frere from the Newberry Library, will present her program “Cobbler, Tailor, Trunkmaker: How my Grandpappy Made a Living” via Zoom at 9:30 AM, July 7.

Members, please refer to your Mailchimp mailing for log-in details. Non-members, or members who have questions, please contact Carol Blohm.

Gail Borden Library has made the decision to not be open for any meetings in July and August because of the pandemic. Therefore, the July and August genealogy meetings are cancelled for these months. We hope to resume in-person meetings in September.
