Heritage Days is tomorrow, rain or shine! Come and see us at the Beall-Dawson Museum and Stonestreet Museum from 12 to 4pm!Heritage Days at Montgomery History is just one week away! Join us on Saturday, June 23 as we celebrate the 1950s in Montgomery County with an opportunity to share your oral histories, play vintage lawn games like the potato "gunny" sack race, enjoy the last few weeks of our "BOOM" exhibit, and much more fun for all ages!
One of the great organizations in MoCo is Maryland History (formerly called the Maryland Historical Society). My wife and I attended their annual meeting tonight (I'm a life member) and saw and heard a fascinating program about MoCo in the 1950s. It was a decade the saw great growth but also a continuation of discrimination even after desegregation of public schools. Maryland History has a speakers program so if you want to have this program at one of your organization's meetings can contact the Speaker's Bureau of Maryland History.
The annual membership meeting includes an update on our organization. This is a members-only program but anyone is welcome to join Montgomery History on the spot, and take advantage of our special $10 first-time member offer.
