The Lothians FHS AGM

 

 

The Lothians FHS AGM is being held at the Lasswade Centre Library in Bonnyrigg on 10th June 2015 at 7.00 pm. It is hoped that a good turnout of members will attend the AGM and the get together afterwards. There will be wine, soft drinks and finger food/nibbles and a chance to meet up and chat with other members. This year  two Family History Societies have closed through lack of volunteers. At the moment we are in need of a Treasurer. If you feel this would be role that you could take on, please contact us -  but please do not be put off attending by the thought of being  on  Committee - you can always say no!!  We would also appreciate suggestions about how you would like the Society run:for example the time of talks (afternoon or evening), whether or not you could volunteer, ideas on what you would like to see on the website etc. please send us your thoughts even if you can't attend the AGM. There will be a selection of our publications and CDs for sale on the night.New members are welcome and can join on the night or through www.parishchest.com
