Society Saturday - Great Moves for Root Cellar Sacramento Genealogical Society

Root Cellar Sacramento Genealogical Society will be on the move in 2013 (if not already).  An exhaustive and lengthy search for a new location for monthly gatherings ably conducted by members Richard Hanson, Lois Shumaker and Marilyn Ulbricht has concluded.  Following site visits, the Board approved a new day and two new locations for Board, General Membership and Workshop meetings.  

If you're a regular at any of these meetings, you already understand the necessity for the moves.  The community room at the grocery store where the board meetings were held was free but at the discretion of the manager so bumping was always a concern.  The historic schoolhouse where the general membership meetings were held had a nominal rental fee but it lacked adequate space, handicapped accessibility features, a paved and lighted parking lot, and reliable heating and air conditioning.  The former workshop location was free but adequate parking became an issue.

Scheduling issues at the new locations precluded Root Cellar from having only one location and the same day for all meetings.  However, the sites had nearly all items on our must-have list and the Board didn't want to pass up these opportunities.  Change isn't easy but hopefully members will be just as impressed with the new locations and adapt to the new schedule. 

Not surprisingly, the new locations mean increased rental fees for Root Cellar.  The Board continues to be vigilant with the Society budget, making ongoing adjustments for such increases while being mindful of maintaining reasonable membership fees. 

Please read the the following information carefully and make a note on your new 2013 calendar.  Don't hesitate to contact Root Cellar at if you have any questions or comments.  Let us know what you think!
