Meetings and Events


Meetings are usually held on the second Friday of every month from September through June at 6:00 p.m. Meetings generally consist of a one hour social with refreshments, a short business meeting, and then a feature program. Speakers are the best available in the Civil War community, many of whom are members of the Round Table. We sometimes record the meeting and put it on DVD for our members to borrow and view at home. See the Meetings page for more info.  Occasionally, the date, time, and location of our meetings vary, so be sure to check the Meetings page for any changes.
