Annual Show and Tell
One of WAGS most beloved traditions is our summer Show and Tell Meeting where WAGS members share a treasure with the group.  It can be an heirloom that has been handed down,  a treasured memento from an ancestor, a story about how you broke through a brick wall in your genealogy research, or an interesting story about one of your ancestors.  Our members always come up with new and interesting stories to share.
If you would like to participate contact our Program Chair, Roger Mount at program@wagswhittier.org, and let him know what you would like to share about.   You don't have to be an accomplished speaker and you don't have to talk for long - about five minutes is the recommended length.
Held at the Whittier Masonic Temple, 7604 Greenleaf Ave, Whittier, CA 90602
Please note that the Radisson Hotel shown on the map is now the Doubletree.
