Yakima Valley Genealogical Society Weekly Blog

(For the week of August 8th-14th, 2021)

August Meeting:  On Saturday YVGS had our monthly meeting.  Richard Kyle gave a presentation on our new website. It was great to see everyone who attended.  If you have questions about the website, contact Richard.

September Meeting:  The Next monthly YVGS meeting will occur on Saturday, September 4th at 10:00 am.

Society Shirts:  The society is ordering shirts and hats with our society logo on them.  Linda Lantis is coordinating the ordering of these items and she has developed an order form.  These forms, along with size and color samples, are on display at the library.  You can view them any day this week and if you need to ask questions, you can either call or text Linda at 731-8438She will be in the library Thursday morning and could also come in another time to discuss these if needed. 

We would like to get them ordered by August 16th in order to have the items back to wear at the garage sale in late September.  When you place an order, please write a check out to YVGS and place it in the cash drawer where there is an envelope for them.  Again, for any questions contact Linda.”

Genealogical Helpers & Family Tree Maker Magazines:  The YVGS library has old Genealogical Helpers and old Family Tree Maker Magazines and a couple of other items that are free for the taking.  They are located on the end of the table as you come in the front door at the library.

Printer Cartage Recycling:  Darryl Jones is only able to find recycling for certain HP printer cartridges.  Prior to bringing in yours for recycling, please contact the library or Darryl to make sure they are the type we can recycled.

Recycling Newspaper & Can Help:  YVGS needs help with our recycling, a fund raiser for the library.  If you can assist, please contact Frank.
