Historical Society Programs for 2021-2022

 
We are currently scheduling programs for 2021-2022 with every intention of holding these programs live, at Ocean House (Keep your fingers crossed!).  Listed below are the expected program dates.
 
Our programs are free and open to the public. Please feel free to attend.
Unless otherwise noted, our programs start promptly at 2pm and generally run about 1 hour.
 

In order to safely offer our programs at the Society this year, these COVID guidelines will be strictly followed.

  • All participants must be vaccinated. For the sake of all our members and our community, please be honest about this.
  • If you are experiencing any of the standard COVID-19 symptoms, please stay home and take care of yourself!
  • Except for the speaker, everyone must wear a mask while inside Ocean House and throughout the entire program.
  • Seating will be reduced from the usual 45-50 seats to roughly 30 seats to allow for more spacing.
  • When weather permits, we will keep doors open and fans running for better fresh air circulation.
  • Refreshments will not be available following the program (sorry!). If people wish to socialize, we will encourage folks to go outside – we have a lovely backyard.

If public health conditions dictate, we will convert in-person programs to remote, Zoom programs.  We will try to make this decision at least a week or two in advance of any given program.  Any change of plans or schedule will be made via email and the Society’s website, so please make sure to check before coming to the Society.
