Brown bag it with us!

Meet, greet and learn from other local history folks in your county and the surrounding counties during a brown bag lunch and discussion. Bring your own lunch. Host sites will provide drinks and dessert.

Attending In Your Neighborhood meetings is a wonderful opportunity to meet, share and connect with other historical organizations and county historians. In these casual gatherings, learn what others have done that has worked well or not so well in their local history organizations and find out about available resources.
