Unless otherwise announced, meetings are held in the Daniels Auditorium on the first floor of the NC Museum of History, 5 Edenton St., Raleigh, NC (across from the State Capitol).   The North Carolina Museum of History does not sponsor or endorse these events.   We meet on the second Monday of most months beginning at 6:30 p.m.   This allows for socializing and light refreshments prior to the start of the meeting proper, which begins at 7:00 p.m. and usually concludes before 8:30 p.m.   Please mark your calendars and join us early!   There is no admission fee to regular meetings.

We invite all visitors to become members.   Members and guests are encouraged to meet beforehand for supper at K&W Cafeteria (511 Woodburn Rd, Cameron Village) at 5:15 p.m.; and for further discussion, at The Mellow Mushroom (Glenwood Avenue & Peace Street) immediately after the meeting.
