TSGS Annual Dinner and "Mr. Evansville"

Tuesday evening my cousin, Terry Winchester, asked me if I was going to the annual dinner for our local  genealogical society's annual dinner.  I hadn't planned to, but, when he said that Harold Morgan was speaking, well, I just knew I would be in for a special treat.

I must admit, I had let my membership to the Tri-Sate Genealogical Society expire.  Wednesday afternoon, after going to the doctor's office and taking care of a few other 'must dos', I mentioned it to my boyfriend, Donnie, and we decided to go the dinner that was being held at the Sirloin Stockade Restaurant.

I don't know if you have ever heard Harold Morgan speak before, but to me, he is "Mr. Evansville".  He seems to know so many facts about my hometown of Evansville, IN.   The subject for the dinner was, "Evansville During The Depression", which included a slideshow.

I'm so glad I went.  We sat with cousin, Terry, the food was great (Donnie had a yummy steak), the people were friendly, and the presentation was all that I hoped it would be.  We had a nice conversation after the event talking to John West, who is also a very knowledgeable person and oh so friendly.


  1. Claudette, glad you came to the TSGS Annual dinner Meeting! Harold Morgan is a great speaker. Thanks for your kind words. And, especially thanks for the photos that I have put on the TSGS Cruiser Blog & will also put on our regular TSGS Web Site.

  2. Thanks John, Glad I brought my camera. "Have camera, will follow"! We had a great time. Time for me to renew my membership.
