John Sellers, Vice President of Programs for the Hopkins County Genealogical Society, stopped by the Afternoon Drive Wednesday to discuss the society’s monthly meeting and all that the society has to offer. The meetings, which are free to attend and open to the public, are held at 7 p.m. on the third Thursday of each month at the Sulphur Springs Public Library.
Pat Chase will present the program at this month’s meeting. Chase will be discussing the history of the horse and how horses have made an impact on transportation. Sellers says that the society covers different aspects of history that surround the genealogy of the people in Hopkins County.
Sellers encourages anyone who is interested in becoming a member of the society to stop by the library and pick up an application. Membership dues are inexpensive at only $20 each year.
The public is invited to attend the February meeting held at the Genealogical Society center tonight at 7.
