Those wishing to join the Society can do so at this meeting.
Currently the Society is trying to assemble a full set of its publications which contain précis of lectures presented to the Society down through the years. The Society has a fair number of issues, the earliest dating from 1974 but the committee believe that there may be an issue earlier than this one.
If any member or former member or the family of a deceased member has a copy, the committee would welcome and appreciate the opportunity to copy it. There is also a gap between 1987 and 1993, with the issues missing ranging from 1988 to 1992 but the committee is unsure if in fact issues were published in those years and again they would like to hear from copy holders.
A similar situation exists with the 1995 and 1996 issues and the committee would like to hear from copy holders. Anyone who brings them to tonight’s meeting is asked to lend them to the Society for about week so that they can be copied after which they will be returned to the copy owners.
Finally members are reminded that annual membership subscriptions are due and can be renewed at tonight’s meeting. Those wishing to join the Society can do at this meeting. For information on the Rathmichael Historical Society and its programme, log
