South King County Genealogical Society July 2024 Happenings

NOTE FROM YOUR PRESIDENT
My term as SKCGS President ends in May 2025. If you are interested in stepping up to lead this Society, now is the time to volunteer, and get involved with the Board. I would love to talk with you, and explore your ideas about the future, and answer your questions.
Thank you, Valorie
Write to: president@skcgs.org to get the dialog started.

Volunteer Opportunity:  Volunteers needed for Black Diamond Miners Day on Saturday, July 13. Setup starts at 8am, and we’ll be there until 4 pm. Come for an hour or two, or all day! Write to outreach@skcgs.org to let us know when you can help out.
