Next Meeting: February 23rd at 7pm

We will be holding our find of the year contest and Peter Teal will be giving a presentation on researching maps.

January 26th Meeting Cancelled

Due to the forecasted winter storm (Snowpocalypse/Snowmageddon) and taking into consideration that many of our members may be traveling from areas south and east of Albany, the January 26th meeting has been cancelled. Our next meeting will be held on Monday, February 23rd. The find of the year contest will be rescheduled for the February meeting as well.

Stay safe and warm.
