Meetings & Events

Beginning in 2023, the RMWHS calendar will be designed to provide a mix of in-person and Zoom-based meetings, events, tours, activities, etc. The date, time, location, and format of the meeting will vary.

This less rigid schedule is a departure from our traditional calendar and will allow us more flexibility to align our activities with community events, venue and speaker availability, museum hours, host organization scheduling, and other opportunities we might otherwise miss.

Efforts to live stream in-person events via Zoom and/or record for replay options will be made within reason.  Some meetings and events on the schedule will be specifically designed and planned for a Zoom virtual meeting. There are some topics that will better lend themselves to this format like a presentation with photos, videos, or an interactive feature such as surveys, quizzes, or voting.

The RMWHS calendar will be posted on this page in the Fall and updated as needed. Additional notices and updates will be directly emailed to all current members. If you wish to get email notifications about RMWHS activities, we'd love to have you as a member. Membership fees are modest and support our ongoing efforts to preserve and promote local history, art, and culture.

For more information about the calendar, membership, or if you'd like to speak or present to the group, please contact us.

Georgie Gould, President, RMWHS

NOTE: All in-person meetings currently require masks be worn covering nose and mouth at all times to protect our more at-risk members. The mask requirement is RMWHS policy and is not negated by venue rules.
