fees are used for the daily operation of the society.
A membership does not require participation in activities, except
as your interest, time and talents permit. If you would like to be a
volunteer with the society, please write, email or call the office to
discuss your ideas. We can use any amount of help you can offer!

You will help the society fulfill its mission to provide a variety of
educational programs year around. These range from genealogy
workshops, folk art demonstrations at local community festivals,
and other special events featuring food, fellowship and guest
speakers. Visit the Upcoming Events page for more information.
Your membership also helps support the History Center research
library. This facility and resources are available to local residents,
former residents, and researchers who travel from abroad in
