TIP OF THE WEEK –
No Such Thing as a Free Lunch, but …
If you’re not familiar with the LDS annual Washington Family History Fair, it’s an entire day of free classes taught by qualified instructors. The day consists of five one-hour sessions. You have several classes to choose from for each session. There are approximately 40 classes in all, plus an Exhibitor Gallery. Classes run the gamut from beginner to advanced. Registration, classes, and parking are all free! Sounds almost too good to be true, but I attended last year and was impressed.
Pre-registration is encouraged and available on-line. If you want a printed syllabus or a boxed lunch, those are available for a nominal fee and you order those during pre-registration. Classes are on a first come, first served basis. Pre-registering will help them plan for the size of the room they need for each class as well as the number of syllabuses to print.
Our new SGS President, Jill Morelli, and SGS members, Jean Roth, Mary Kircher Roddy, and Steve Morrison will be presenting. Refer to the “Agenda and Schedule” on the website to check out the class descriptions and/or information on any of the numerous instructors.
This year the Family History Fair 2016 is at the Bellevue South Stake Center, behind the temple at 15205 SE 28th Street, Bellevue, WA 98007, on Saturday, November 12, from 9:00 am until 5:00 pm. Doors open at 8:00 am for check-in or day-of-event registration.
