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. Since March 2020, we've been holding our board meetings instead from our homes, on Zoom. Contact a Board Member to let us know you wish to register to attend our next board meeting, and we will email you the link to register. Email your request to email@example.com, stating "Attend board meeting" in the SUBJECT line.
Upcoming board meeting: FRIDAY, March 19, 2021, at 3:00 PM.
