First Wednesday Speaker Series – 2013

The Mill Valley Historical Society takes pride in its tradition of hosting the First Wednesday meetings. Originally these were 1st THURSDAY meetings, but about 10 years ago for reasons long forgotten, they are now known as the 1st Wednesday. Each FIRST Wednesday of the Month, from February to June, the MVHS invites a guest who has knowledge of a historic theme that has a connection to Mill Valley or Southern Marin. Occasionally we will also welcome entertaining guests who will talk of a historical event about other parts of Marin, or even San Francisco. These evenings are popular and ofen attract audiences that fill the Creekside room of the Mill Valley Library. If you are a MVHS member you will receive monthly mailings informing you of the upcoming speakers, as well as receiving the monthly electronic newsletter. (Keep us updated with your
current email address).
