Rhinebeck Historical Society board meetings are usually scheduled for the third Thursday of every month at 3:00pm, but are subject to change depending on the schedules of the majority of the board. We welcome any of our members or members of the public who may wish to attend.  Before Pandemic Time, the board met in the Mary Frazer Room (aka Local History Room) on the lower level of the Starr Library. From March 2020 through April 2021, we held our board meetings instead from our homes, on Zoom. Since May 2021, we have resumed meeting in-person at Starr, may arrange a simultaneous Zoom link. Contact a Board Member if you wish to attend. Email your request to michaelfrazier@earthlink.net, stating "Attend board meeting" in the SUBJECT line. ​ Upcoming board meeting: THURSDAY, September 16, 2021, at 3:00 PM. ​
