The annual membership meeting of the Tucker Historical Society will be held Monday, Feb. 4, 2013 at 7 p.m. and end shortly before 8 p.m. in Room 15 at the Tucker Recreation Center.
All members are invited to attend this important meeting. It will include the election of board members and a brief overview of our 2013 events. Please note: Tucker Recreation Center now closes at 8 p.m. This will be a business meeting only due to the brief time allowance.
We have been working on the schedules of our annual springtime events and will have this schedule printed for the meeting too. Please mark these events on your calendar and plan how you want to participate in each one. We will have volunteer sign-up sheets as well.
