Meeting Info

In the past, the Society met at the New Carrollton Municipal Center the first Wednesday of every month at 7 p.m. We do not meet in July, August, or January.  We are currently meeting virtually instead of in person, due to the Covid-19 pandemic.  Members will receive an invitation to a meeting a few days before it is held.  Non-members may click on the red text link to email the president and request an invitation.  The public is welcome.
