WWCGS Membership Meetings

Autumn All Together!


Our monthly meetings are the third Monday of every month — we’re excited to share that we will be at a new location!  Get ready for an Autumn All Together!

    • Fall meetings (Sept/Oct/Nov) will be held at the Plymouth District Library.  
    • We are bringing in fantastic local presenters who will bring top research tips and interesting information to our events!
    • Out of area members will still be able to access our meetings with our hybrid option.

We look forward to seeing you at the Plymouth District Library – 223 S. Main St., Plymouth, MI 48170 – for our September, October, and November meetings!  The library’s meeting rooms were recently renovated with top notch technology and room to move around.

IMPORTANT NOTE for members planning to renew your membership at the meeting: Due to the rules and regulations of Plymouth District Library no money can change hands at library events so we cannot accept payment in person.  Please renew your membership online or through the mail.
