Ramblers Events

Since COVID-19 We have transitioned to both in-person and Zoom for our meetngs which are held on the last Wednesday of the month at 9:30. In addition we have a mid-month meeting via Zoom only. . Some may not care for Zoom, however, this has enabled us to have speakers from all over the state and even from England at a much better rate than having to pay for travel expenses, so there are advantages. Below are some of our upcoming meetings and events:

"1800's: Life in A ByGone Era - No WiFi, No Problem!"

Life was very different in the 1800's, and the needs were met in different ways. How did our ancestors manage? What was it like? What was the progression of "progress" and how did we adapt? As we look at our history, we certainly can better appreciate life of our family members and community citizens. It's how we got to where we are today! It's hard to think of life before the WiFi...Do we want to remember for too long?
