You're invited to join fellow OCPHS members in this year's Holiday Extravaganza parade in downtown Pontiac, Saturday morning December 5th. The parade is an annual tradition, attracting thousands of spectators and many participants. If you'd like to join the OCPHS contingent, call or email the office and we'll provide the particulars. We'll wear history-themed costumes or "Christmas Colors" of red, green or white as we walk the route. Click http://www.holidayextravaganza.org/ for more information about the parade.
'Tis the Season to be Jolly: Save the date for our annual Christmastime celebration at Pine Grove, Sunday afternoon, December 6 from 1 - 4 p.m. This is a time to gather for festive, old-fashioned fellowship and holiday cheer! Planning now underway, volunteers welcome to help plan, bake cookies, and assist before, during, and after the event. Sponsorships welcome, too--see our Donate page for more info. We look forward to celebrating together on December 6!
Our October 3rd dinner & auction at downtown Pontiac's Lafayette Grande was truly a special night for OCPHS. About 100 people enjoyed a wonderful buffet, laughter, and spirited bidding on terrific items donated for sale at this "friend raiser" for the Society. The evening wouldn't have been possible without the support of our members and friends who attended and volunteered, and the donations of our sponsors (Click on the image at right for a larger view.) Hats Off to You!

Our office and research library are generally open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., but our hours may vary due to the schedules of our volunteers or due to inclement weather.
