NOTICE: The August 5, 2022 in-person meeting in Middletown is CANCELLED.

With Covid, most O&WRHS meetings have been held online, via Zoom. However, this year (2022), we tried resuming in-person meetings in Middletown, with two meetings – the first one on April 8th. Unfortunately, the attendance was so light that we could not make a quorum, and we couldn’t hold a full meeting. That was not fair to the members who drove many miles to attend, so therefore we are canceling the August 5th meeting.

We do still plan to resume holding our annual conventions, starting with this year’s convention on November 12, 2022 at the Otterkill Country Club near Campbell Hall, NY. Details are forthcoming.

Next O&WRHS Membership Meeting:

July 13, 2022 8:00 PM – Eastern Time (US and Canada)

Held online via Zoom. Members Only.

Ray Kelly will give a presentation about the Middletown-to-Goshen trolley.
