December 2017 Meeting Program: 

The It's Time to Show and Tell!

7:30 pm on Thursday, December 7th - Trinity Episcopal Church

 

Show and Tell Evening is back by popular demand and will be the highlight of our December meeting once again. This is the program when members take center stage and share artifacts and treasures from their own col-lections.  

Local history is best told by locals, and this is your chance to share the story of your personal connection to Orange County’s past. So clean out the attic and rummage through Granny’s trunk of treasures and show us what you’ve got!  

There will be a sign up sheet when you arrive and participants will be called up one at a time. Everyone is looking forward to seeing and hearing about what you bring to share!  

Come to share or just come to see what is shared.  As always, the general public is cordially invited to attend. The meeting will be held on Thursday, December 7 beginning at 7:30 pm at the Trinity Episcopal Church, 2400 N. Canal St., Orange


 

Upcoming OCHS Office Hours!

 

The OCHS office and archives will not be open during November and December due to the holiday weekends.  However, we will be back to our regular “last Saturday of every month” schedule on January 27, 2018, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. Board members and/or volunteers will be available to assist you with your research questions and help you discover what materials we have.

 

If you need more information or are interested in becoming a volunteer, please contact us at info@orangecountyhistory.org.
