Martinez Historical Society Annual Meeting

One and all are invited to attend the annual meeting of the Martinez Historical Society, held at the Veterans Memorial Building on Sunday, January 27 2019 from 11 am - 1 pm. Items of business will include election of Board Members, election of the Nomination Committee, and an amendment to the Society's bylaws.

Be sure to stay for local historian Tom Zamaria's always-fascinating presentation entitled "Little Gems from the MHS Negative and Slide Collection", where Tom does a deep dive to find some rarely-seen images of and about Martinez.

..you won't want to miss this!

And if that isn't enough, you are invited to enjoy a bowl of Barbara Patchin's famous Church Soup, which is a perennial treat. We hope to see you at the meeting, come and learn about the Martinez Historical Society and get involved, it is a wonderful local volunteer organization dedicated to the preservation of our town's wonderful history.
