UPDATE: June meeting will take place at 4:30 p.m. in the lunch room in the maintenance building in the lower park (first left after the lower park entrance ticket station; moved from the picnic pavilion in the upper park due to chilly weather.). Members are welcome to attend!
Our monthly Board of Trustees meeting is scheduled for this date and time. Members are welcome to attend. We will be evaluating our experience with our third annual I Love My Park Day on the 7th, as well as other agenda items, including progress on a grant application. Throughout the winter, we have been meeting in the lunch room at the maintenance building in the lower park, and we will meet there for this May meeting. But during the warmer months (beginning at this June's meeting), we move to the porch of the picnic pavilion in the upper park (unless it is rented at the time, in which case we meet on the porch of the Old Mill.). At the present time, we are scheduling our monthly meetings on the second Monday of the month unless otherwise posted here.

It will take place in the Lyceum Auditorium of Kendal of Ithaca.

Formerly, Dr. Baugher was the first official New York City archeologist. She will compare her experiences and insights gained from work in these two settings in New York State.
