President's Message

We welcome you for next year's programs - which will be hybrid.  It will be wonderful to see attendees in person but Zoom will also be available.
And, the Washington, DC, research trip is scheduled for October 23-29!  The Portage Senior Center is organizing the trip for both genealogical researchers and also "tour-on-your-own" travelers.  Watch the newsletter and website for updates.
See you in September.
