Joining

Join in the SCHS Mission!

Joining Sappington-Concord Historical Society benefits both you and the Society. Then it also helps our community as a whole. Members of the SCHS are helping to sponsor presentations by interesting speakers on various historical topics. And when attending SCHS events, members find fellowship with friends and neighbors. The Society benefits from your attending its fine, well-planned events and presentations and of course it gets your membership fee. Small as it is, the fee represents an investment in yourself as well as the Society and the community. The membership fees are listed below.

Your monetary contribution to the Society is important, but just as important is your interest in our local history. Learning about our history keeps it alive and your contribution of your history, your family’s history and what you know about local history adds to our common base of knowledge.

We need to create our own history together, because no one else will do it for us. There is nobody out there somewhere writing about our area and preserving our local history for us. We have to do it ourselves. And when we remember our history and record our history, our whole community knows better about itself. Knowing our history means we have a stronger identity and our community will be stronger moving into the future.

Belonging to SCHS is both fun and interesting, to use mild words. But please see for yourself. Review our Event pages to see what we have done in the past and what events are coming up in the near future. Also see the About us pages to see what other benefits and programs SCHS offers. And finally, actually move your feet and legs to one of the events coming up. They are free and open to the public. You are guaranteed to find like-minded people who will make your world bigger and richer.

Please join us, for yourself, for the Society, and for our community. That is a win win situation for sure! In short, when you join us, we’ll make history together!
