Annual AHS Membership Meeting and Local History Public Program: “The Washington Golf and Country Club: Links to Local and National History”
Join us for an evening with the historian at Washington Golf & Country Club and learn some of the rich history of one of the country’s oldest golf clubs. This year marks the 125th anniversary of Arlington’s treasured institution and Johnathan Thomas will provide the audience with interesting facts and fun secrets about past members, including five U.S. Presidents. The discussion will be highlighted with some rare photos and memorabilia.
The Arlington Historical Society will hold a brief annual members’ meeting just prior to the history presentation to elect new officers and directors.
The program is free and open to the public. It will take place in the Reinsch Library auditorium on the Main Campus of Marymount University. This event is part of a monthly series of public programs sponsored by the Arlington Historical Society and Marymount University’s Department of History and Politics.
