Important Announcement - Meeting Hours have changed!

As we plan our activities for Chestnut Ridge Historical Society in 2024, we would love to hear from you when you have ideas and suggestions.

Our first 2024 meeting is planned for Tuesday March 19th. 

But we want to try something different. 

This meeting will convene at 1:00pm rather than in the evening.

March weather can still be wintry so this will get us there and home during daylight.

There will be no speaker in March but we will be busy with nominations for several positions.  Three members of the Board of Directors see their terms expire this year and have agreed to serve another 3 years. Officers need to be nominated and elected annually.

We hope to see you there!

Monthly Meeting Details!


Very Important Announcement!

Our Monthly Meeting Hours have changed!

Starting on March 19th, our New Meeting Time

will be 1:00pm to 3:00pm

and we will continue to meet on

the Third Tuesday of every month

at the new meeting time!

According to the Bylaws, nominations for officers are presented at the March meeting and elections occur at the April meeting. This year we need to elect a President and a Treasurer. If by chance someone who already holds an office is nominated for a different position, a replacement will be needed for their current office as well.

Please consider presenting a nomination at the March meeting, in person or via email, making sure you have permission from the person you want to nominate.

If you live close enough to attend our meetings but haven't yet tried that, we would love to see you.

Louise Sprowls, recording secretary
