Fourth At The Furnace!
June CFHS Meeting
Tuesday, June 14th, Noon – 2 p.m.
We will hold a hybrid meeting. You may join us in person at The Museum of the Ironworker or on Zoom. Please note that we still require facemarks to be worn indoors unless actively eating and drinking as light lunch is served during the meeting.
Please register for the Zoom meeting using the link below where you can join via computer or telephone. If you experience any issues, please call 240-288-7396 and we will help you register.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting. You only have to register once, and once you are registered, you will be registered for the remainder of the meetings until January 2023. Your confirmation email from Zoom will send you a link that you can add to your calendar, and you will be able to join the meeting every second Tuesday of the month. We have switched to this format so that we do not have to send out a new link every month.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
