Your board continues to meet and plan for the continued genealogical education of its members. Meetings, via Zoom, take place the third Monday of every month. Open to all members. To join us or ask us to add something to the agenda, contact Jean Hibben (circlemending – at – gmail – dot – com) – put “CGS Board meeting” in the “subject” heading.
CORONA PUBLIC LIBRARY
650 S. Main St. (at 6th), Corona, CA 92882
Meetings are held in the Community Room, the first Monday of every month* from 6:30 – 8:30pm.
To network, get to know each other, or receive/give genealogical research assistance, “early birds” are welcome to gather at 6:00pm. ——————-
*in the event that the first Monday is a holiday, the meeting is automatically “bumped” to the second Monday (or scheduled for the prior Monday).. The society is open to anyone who wishes to research his/her family history. Monthly programs are offered to assist us in successfully identifying our ancestors of all backgrounds, cultures, ethnicities, religions, etc. Members are also encouraged to assist others by presenting a topic that will be of interest to the rest of the group and participating in the various projects the society hosts.
CEREMONIAL “PASSING OF THE GAVEL” would be from Al Southern back to Jean Hibben and would look a lot like the photo below . . . except we would be at social distance and wearing masks. It happened “virtually” on 5 April 2021 (this 2019 photo by Len Enlow). THANK YOU to Al for being our president during this difficult time and letting then 1st VPJean Hibben handle the Zoom board meetings from May 2020 – March 2021 (see screen shot above).
