VALLLEY CLAN DIGGERS  (Genealogy Group Meetings)
VARIES FOR EACH MONTH - FOR DAY, TIME AND PLACE CONTACT ALICE
Valley Clan Diggers Group: The Valley Clan Diggers is a group of ladies that meets once a month in different members' homes for the purpose of sharing in their genealogical pursuits. In the beginning its members all lived in the valley -- hence the name Valley Clan Diggers. However, the membership is not limited to the valley.
 
The purpose and goals for the group were discussed: sharing current projects, helping each other with ancestral "dead-ends", car-pooling to workshops, and occasional field trips. At times we would invite a guest speaker who had expertise in a certain specialized area. Anyone who feels that such a group would meet their needs, and especially if you live in the Spokane Valley, you are welcome at the Valley Clan Diggers wholeheaterdly!

Contact Alice Hostetter (928-4198) Donna Jean Carnegie (926-8985) for more information.
 


Saturday, November 1
Civil War Project and Honor Flight  (EWGS Meetings)
12:30 pm to 3:00 pm
Spokane Public Library Auditorium
Presenter: Patty Harrison
This is   a 3-part program, all with a military theme, and all three guaranteed to be fantastic!  Perfect timing since November 11th is Veterans’ Day.
Patty Dana Harrison has been working for a year to coordinate the EWGS Civil War Project. This was a project to have all of us submit information on the units (North or South) that our Civil War ancestors fought with and to see if we have any matches among us. She has made these forms available, but if you still need one, send her an email customstitchesbypatty@hotmail.com.  At the November meeting, Patty will give us an update on the project.
 
Part 2 of our program:  Speaker from the Northwest Honor Flight program. This program flys World War II vets to Washington, D.C. to view the World War II Memorial.  Is your World War II serving uncle, father or grandfather still with us?  If so, and if he’s never been to see this memorial, the Honor Flight program would make it happen.
 
Part 3 of our program:  EWGS member Dale Ryan is bringing examples of Civil War flags to showing and explaining the differences between them.
 
12:30 P.M. Coffee and social time.  Meeting starts at 1:00 P.M.
