What's Been and What's to Come

By Connie Estep

Snow and ice cancelled the last two meetings: the December “Show and Tell” meeting featuring members’ collections and heirlooms; and for January, Hanford History Project Archivist, Robert Franklin. He has been rescheduled for the June meeting.

December was to be the last meeting at Charbonneau with a move to the Benton County PUD auditorium for meetings this year. The PUD is on 10th Avenue in Kennewick, just east of 395.

Keep your fingers crossed for better weather for the February meeting. As of Monday night (Feb 13) rain is predicted for meeting night but temperatures are expected to stay above freezing.

The February 15th meeting features Glenn Allison in a first person portrayal of a World War I “doughboy” at 7pm. Many of us saw Glenn perform as Captain Meriwether Lewis during and after the Lewis & Clark Bicentennial.

Come early Wednesday night for the Beginning Genealogy class running from 6:15 to 6:45 pm. Birth records are this month’s topic!
