UFM Lifetime Learning: History of the History Keepers

Thursday, March 16, 2023 - 6:30pm

Location: Community Room at Meadowlark

UFM Lifetime Learning presents History of the History Keepers from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Thursday, March 16, in the Community Room.

In the world of museums, we often forget that those who preserve our heritage are at the same time, making their own history. The Riley County Historical Society and Museum have more than a century’s worth of their own unique history which started with their incorporation in 1914. Learn about the last 108 years of the society’s legacy, their involvement in the community, their contributions, their mission, and their path forward as Katharine Hensler, the new museum director, takes you on a trip through the past.

Enrollment is now open and can be completed by calling (785) 539-8763. This class is offered through UFM at no charge to Meadowlark residents, and Passport members may attend with a 20-percent discount. Reminder: Meadowlark does not have a partnership agreement with Osher Lifetime Learning; therefore, Osher classes are not available at a discount to Meadowlark affiliates.
