The Yolo County Historical Society marks its 50th year from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday at the Yolo County Historical Museum, 512 Gibson Road in Woodland. Charter members and the public are cordially invited to attend.
Special tours of the museum collections and the current exhibit featuring century-old womens’ organizations will precede a brief program and the sharing of an anniversary cake. Outgoing society president B.J. Ford will make an annual report and preside over the election of new officers. Joann Larkey, charter secretary in 1963, will moderate a discussion of the society’s beginnings and will offer an open mic for others to reminisce about the historical society’s many activities over the past 50 years.
Descendants of early Yolo County pioneer families will be honored guests on Sunday and plans for further events celebrating the founding of the Yolo County Historical Society on Sept. 30, 1963, are being made.
Those interested in membership or further information may contact treasurer Reva Barzo at 530-867-5800 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
