Monthly Meetings

The typical meeting begins with coffee, morning snacks, and conversation, then advances to the very popular Mart, where at no additional charge, members are provided a table to display their array of clocks, watches, tools, books, and other horological ephemera for sale. After the Mart we'll normally have a short business meeting, followed by our educational program, usually featuring a guest, speaking on a topic of interest to all members.
If you're new to the area, we'd like to meet you, and want to encourage you to visit as our guest. Contact an officer or director via their e-mail link for information about attending one of our meetings.
