The Idaho Genealogical Society will hold its board meetings at the Lake Hazel Library until further notice.
Next meeting time and location:
September 20, 2014, 1:30 - 3:30 p.m., Conference Room
The Dead Relative Collectors (DRC) meeting will be held at the same location, starting at 12:00 p.m. Everyone is welcome to attend.
Concerning this month's DRC meeting: "I decided to do something a little differently for this month. I went to the Treasure Valley Celtic Festival this last Saturday and met Leslie Walt who led a Celtic sing-a-long and taught a Gaelic language class. She is a great teacher and it was fun to delve deeper into the Scottish culture by exploring their language and songs. Even if you do not have Scottish roots I think you will really enjoy learning more about the culture. Hope to see you there!!!" Amy Makela
The Lake Hazel Library is located at the corner of Five Mile and Lake Hazel, 10489 Lake Hazel Road, Boise, Idaho 83709.
