March 6th 1872-2022: 150th Anniversary Celebration
Online Reception at 5:00 pm on Sunday, March 6th
Our event is modeled on the reception held at the Day House in 1872. We will be broadcasting from the Day House and hope you’ll join us via zoom to raise a glass! We look forward to reliving key moments of the community’s progress towards independence and share material of the era from the Society’s collections.
