At the last Events Committee meeting, we planned for the annual meeting, which took place on January 24. Thanks to all who attended.

At the next meeting at 6:00 p.m. in the second floor pews of the Midtown Scholar (1302 N. 3rd St.), we’ll discuss the March 15 spring social at the Historic Harrisburg Resource Center as well as look ahead to our June event at the Sunken Gardens.
