History Café Newsletters

One of the ways we have been keeping touch, while we are unable to meet in person, has been via monthly newsletters.  These can be downloaded below.  If you would like to be put on the mailing list for these newsletters, or you have a memory to share please contact SJMFHeritage@post.com .
