Carson City Historical Society Christmas Party and Annual Meeting
Sunday, Dec. 8, 2013
The Carson City Historical Society and Foundation for the Betterment of Carson City
Parks & Recreation's Christmas Party will be Sunday, December 8, 2013, at the Bliss
Mansion (608 Elizabeth Street) from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m., and we will be very pleased
if you will come. Squeek
Steele will be performing excerpts of her extensive
repertoire on piano. She will take requests, play a few holiday pieces, and, of
course, perform pieces from her wide-ranging ragtime repertoire. Tasty finger
foods will be accompanied by wine, sparkling cider, or water. If you haven't been
inside the Bliss, then this is your opportunity. If you have visited the Bliss,
then you know what a marvelous venue it is. We thank our friends, Steve and Cyndy
Brenneman, owners of the Bliss Mansion, for sharing this wonderful venue with us again.
Cost for this event is $25 for members and $30 for non-members. Please send your
check made payable to Carson City Historical Society, to Chuck Saulisberry,
909 Norrie Drive, Carson City, NV 89703 before December 5, 2012.
Our annual meeting will be held as part of the event. Nominations for all
offices will be taken from the membership. While the current officers have
agreed to continue for the next year they would certainly appreciate some new ideas!
Please consider becoming an officer. In addition to the general election, reports
will be provided for the membership. Questions will be answered to the best of our ability.
Members who pay their dues for 2014 at the Christmas Party will receive their
membership cards, the Society's Bylaws, and a current list of members.
Membership is $25 per person or $35 for family and includes our newsletter
plus the opportunity to attend historical events.
We are looking forward to celebrating the holidays with you. For further information,
call David Bugli at 775-883-4154 or at [email protected]

"Third Thursday" Lecture Series in 2014
The "Third Thursday" lecture series, featuring talks about Nevada history on the third
Thursday of the month, will resume in 2014. A number of lecturers
have been contacted and scheduling each of them to fit our schedule and ensure we
have a presentation space is in progress. Traditionally we held our lectures at the
auditorium of the Carson City Library, but that space is being repurposed by the Library.
However, the Library has been able to let us use The BRIC (Business Resource
Innovation Center) at 108 E. Proctor St. (just north of City Hall) for several lectures.
If you wish to be notified of these events by e-mail as they are scheduled, please send
your name and e-mail address to [email protected]
