THE JANUARY QUARTERLY LUNCHEON MEETING IS MOVING
 
Near the end of October the Stegton Regency Banquet Center  informed us that they were shutting down their operation at the close of business on December 31, 2016.  The SCCHS has enjoyed a very good working relationship with Stegton's for many years and is sorry to see them go out of business.  But, time marches on and the SCCHS Board of Directors has decided to hold the January 28, 2017 Quarterly Luncheon Meeting at Pio's Restaurant - one of our Supporting Business Members - located at 403 First Capitol Drive in St. Charles.  The meeting will be in their second floor Banquet facility.  However, there is an elevator just inside the entrance for those who are unable, or prefer not to, use the stairway.
 
CLICK HERE for more information on the January Quarterly Luncheon Meeting.



 
The St. Charles County Historical Society is celebrating its 60th Anniversary this year - its Diamond Jubilee.  During 2016 we celebrated our Diamond Jubilee with three special events:
  1. an Early Settlers' Homes tour on September 17th,
  2. a second Early Settlers' Homes tour on October 1st, and
  3. a Celebration Dinner on October 28th.
  Click here to view a slideshow of pictures from the dinner.
 
Proceeds from all the Diamond Jubilee events, will be used to purchase a new microfilm reader/scanner and other vitally needed equipment for the Archives (click here for more information).
