Historic Royal Oak








MEETINGS OF THE ROYAL OAK HISTORICAL SOCIETY

  • General Meetings: The Society holds an Annual Banquet, usually during the month of October. At this time new officers are elected, awards made and a presentation delivered on some aspect of Royal Oak / local history. For detailed, current information on the Society and its events, click here on ROHS

  • Board of Directors: Meetings of the Officers and The Board of Directors are held quarterly. The business of The Board is to advise the President and to plan future activities of the Society. Unfortunately, recent meeting dates have been at hours too early for younger, working people to attend. This seems sadly counterproductive to the objective of injecting "new blood" into the society.

  • Oral History: Town Hall meetings, slide / web presentations, oral history sessions, etc. have been held at various times during past years, occasions when members and non-members review Royal Oak history and their memories. Meetings of this type have been successfully held at the Royal Oak Woman's Club building.
