Our December 12th meeting will be at the Benton County PUD Auditorium in Kennewick on the corner of Hwy #395 and 10th Street
The program for this year will be the Show & Tell event and we will not have a Beginning Genealogy Class that evening. The program  activity starts at 7:00 p.m., but for those of you who are setting up displays, you can come as early as 6:15 p.m.
Show Off Your Heritage
 
Members and guests are asked to bring items about your family heritage/history as well as what interests you have.
1. Photographs
2. Documents
3. Family heirlooms, antiques
4. Hobbies, collections or recreation interests
Your legacy will one day be handed down to your children/grandchildren/great-grandchildren and they will want to know what hobbies and collections you had as a child/teenager or as an adult.
You can display your family photographs and documents on a poster or a tri-fold or on the table.
This will be a fun event for everyone to have a glimpse of your family history as well as the antiques/heirlooms, hobbies and collections that you either inherited or have or previously engaged in.
Refreshments:
Please bring homemade or store bought cookies, candies, fudge, muffins, quick breads (banana, zucchini, apple, pumpkin), cake, etc.  Beverages, plates, napkins and utensils will be provided.
Thank you for your continued interest in TCGS

“The Push and Pull Factors of Migration and Their Aftermath”
We will be covering what makes people migrate and what are the consequences of those migrations depending on whether it was a push or pull factor – in other words, did they choose to leave or were they forced. And when forced, how the political and geographical circumstances affected their lives.
