[CA-SCGS] Change in SCGS Family Research Library Hours

[CA-SCGS] Annual Meeting Reminder

As we near the end of the year, the Board and members of the Southern California Genealogical Society send best wishes for the holidays.

Here are some last-minute reminders:

Plan to attend the annual meeting on Saturday, December 14. Meet the current and newly elected Board members; hear about the successes from 2013 and goals for 2014; and be the first to hear about plans for the 2014 Southern California Genealogy Jamboree.

Return your ballot for the 2014 Board of Directors by Thursday, December 12.

If you have any new or gently used items to donate to the silent auction that will be held after the Annual Meeting, please deliver them to the library by end of the day Friday.

While you're in the giving mood, think about bringing a gift to SCGS. Reams of paper, paper products such as paper towels, postage, office supplies, etc. Every little contribution helps. 

If you are an online shopper, remember that SCGS earns a commission from sales on Amazon.com. You'll benefit the society while you give to your family and friends.

Finally, as you are considering the many organizations that are worthy of your donation dollars, please keep SCGS in mind. You can donate online or by PayPal. It's relatively painless, takes just a minute, and it will help us continue to provide service to genealogists in Southern California and across the globe.

See you at the Annual Meeting on Saturday!
