As we look forward to  a "new mortal" some events in late Spring and beyond are set for 'real' rather than"virtual" gatherings. We can only hope this happens. The quality and quantity of virtual programming has truly been amazing. I feature the unique "History Hounds" programs of the Historical Society of Michigan, lectures at the Hauenstein Center, Grand Valley State University, along with some other events. Older adults might also want to avail themselves of the Society of Active retirees (SOAR) Spring Lecture series. Details at www.soarexplore.com

HSM offers "History Hounds" weekly virtual  programs on a wide variety of interestingMichigan history  topics. "History Hounds" programs are free to all HSM  members and to members of groups having an HSM organizational membership, such as the Detroit Historical Society. Non-members can register for $7.00. You can enjoy the content from the comfort and safety of your home. For details and to register, visit https://hsmichigan.org/programs/history-hounds-lecture-series/

NOTE: Please confirm details/logistics with the organization's website. Dates, times subject to changes
