Due to the public gathering restrictions in place for the COVID-19 pandemic, the Society will be hosting lectures virtually over the internet via Zoom. Lectures will be held live and will not be recorded for later playback due to copyright restrictions on the images used in the presentations. A link will be sent out to those on our emailing list. In addition, the link will be posted on the lecture page and Facebook event page a day prior to the presentation.
If you are not on our email reminder list and would like to be, please send your email address to OldYorkRoadHistory@gmail.com.
