Meeting this Saturday, January 14, 2023
Our first meeting of 2023 will be an in-person meeting at the Church on Airport Road. This will be a meet and greet with no scheduled program. This will be an opportunity to meet with fellow genealogists that we may not have seen over the past year – maybe longer. We will have an informal discussion about our plans for CVGA for 2023.
Please plan to attend so we can get re-acquainted or meet in person for the first time and set out our plans for this year.
