Every year, our members come together at the SCHS Annual Meeting to share their love of local history, and to help move SCHS forward. This year, we’re doing things a little differently.

We hope you’ll join us for our virtual Annual Meeting, hosted on Google Meet on Tuesday, July 21 at 7pm. To take part, all you need to do is click this link the day of the meeting:
