The Wayne County Historical Society board members have agreed with us that it is way past time we brought back those educational ‘member programs’ that (before the pandemic) you all loved.
“THIRD THURSDAYS” (catchy, right?!) will take place at 7 p.m. at the Museum of Wayne County History on the third Thursday of every month, beginning with this upcoming 3rd Thursday, May 19th!
For our first "Third Thursday" topic, Rhea Hayes and I plan to hold an information session on how to access information in the 21st century. This topic quickly became a 'no brainer' for us after fielding calls from people who either don’t have internet access or don’t know how (or where!) to GO to find the information they are seeking.
Like our 2022 “Remember Our Ladies” exhibit, this first “Third Thursday” is meant to be interactive. We hope all who attend will have all kinds of questions we can help answer – and that all who come will leave armed with lots of ideas of where and how to go about finding the information they need.
In this day and age, fewer ‘real people’ are answering phones, more and more newspapers are shutting down and/or raising ad prices, and many non-profits have moved to online ads and information-sharing. It just makes sense. But we acknowledge that this CAN make it difficult for people who have not made that move yet for one reason or another.
We want to help you stay in touch and are willing to do whatever we can to help you do that – and want to help answer any questions you may have about it!
Please note: These talks are exclusive to (and free for) all WCHS Annual Members. Non-members will be charged a small fee at the door for admission. For more information on our membership programs, visit www.waynehistory.org/memberships.
We will be at the Museum of Wayne County History, 21 Butternut Street, Lyons, at 7 p.m. on Thursday, May 19th. We hope to see you then!
