Calendar

Typically, we meet on the first Thursday of each month (except January) at 7 pm at the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic.  While the Fisheries Museum is under renovations we will be moving the meetings around, so please pay particular attention to location.  The information is published in the Lunenburg Progress Enterprise and the Lighthouse Log, on Facebook and on this web-site in advance of our meetings.

Generally, unless additional supplies are required for an event or a very high profile speaker is arranged, there is no cost to members for our monthly events.  Your annual membership covers these costs.  Guests may attend any event for a nominal fee of $2.00 plus any additional costs for supplies or to cover high profile speakers.
