Community Meetings

As the MHF Board restructures, the Fall Community Meetings are going on hiatus. We are discussing new programs and events for our members and the Matthews history community. Please check the Special Interest column to the right for upcoming events. We hope to announce some new ideas for the spring and next fall.

Thank you for your continued interest and support of the Matthews Historical Foundation. By investing in the past, we can insure the future.
