Pend Oreille County Lecture Series
The 2018 Series is still under development
The Pend Oreille County Historical Society Lecture Series brings educational and cultural presentations in area history relevant topics of interest to a small community in Northeastern Washington. Topics this year have been chosen by past lecture questionnaires and will include Geology in Pend Oreille County, Kalispel Indians and the Great Northern Railway. The program is designed and operated by a group of local volunteers who continue to keep the public interest in history growing.
Our Museum hosts the Society Lecture Series in various locations in Eastern Washington to for entire county participation. This series brings educational opportunities in history, geology and culture to an isolated community in Northeastern Washington. The Board of Directors of the Pend Oreille County Historical Society has all agreed that the public interest and support for this program over the last two years has grown. More people are interesting in attending future lectures and more people have shown an interest in culture and learning.
For 2018, our lectures will remain on Saturday afternoons at 2 pm so people of all ages local and tourists can attend. The Board of Directors agree that the time and day has resulted in a growing attendance.
The Society Lecture Series will continue to be offered to the public free of charge by the Pend Oreille County Historical Society with the generosity of funding providers. We plan to promote and advertise the lecture events on a regional scale.
Once again this year, we will be sharing information on lecture dates with local non-profit organizations and the local school districts In Washington and Idaho to spread the word about upcoming presentations. We will be reaching out to local school districts (both public and private) to provide opportunities for students to attend the lectures. Our presentations are set to give the local student and interested participant an up close and personal experience with the author, historian, or professor.
