Upcoming Events

Our May program will be held LIVE at the Church of the Redeemer, 5700 Forbes Avenue, Squirrel Hill, on Tuesday, May 10, at 7:30 p.m.

Proof of vaccination and masks will be required out of consideration for our population of members, some of whom may be at risk.

Attendance will be limited to the first 40 who register by email in order to maintain spaced seating.

To register, send an email to sqhillhist@shhsoc.org with “Register for May meeting” in the subject line. Make sure to list names of all those attending – you will be informed of whether space is available by response to your request.

For the convenience of those who might not be able to attend our live meeting but would like to participate, we may offer a Zoom broadcast during each of our live meetings, depending on technical considerations and availability of volunteer staffing to doing so.

You will be sent an email with a Zoom link the day of the meeting. Members will receive the link automatically without requesting it, and others may request it using the link on our homepage.

If you have any suggestions or ideas for future speakers or topics to put on our agenda, please email us at sqhillhist@shhsoc.org.
