The events are to include online lectures and exhibits, behind the scenes tours, at-home lesson plans and more on the society’s website and on Facebook.
Currently scheduled online events are: A virtual ice cream social, May 15, from 6 to 8 p.m. on the society’s Facebook page, and a virtual trivia night, May 28, from 6 to 8 p.m.
