Dear Members and Friends:                                               May 30, 2020

Due to the current recommendations and restrictions, it is with great disappointment we announce that all Elk Grove Historical will remain closed through September 14, 2020.  This cancellation affects all gatherings with the exception of Yard Sale donations on weekends in August (See below).

Thank you for being a Society member or guest and supporting our functions.  More importantly, thank you for understanding the circumstances we find ourselves in.  Our goal is to have safe activities for you and the public.  

We look forward to business as usual, as soon as this situation subsides.  Be safe and take care.

Donated items can be brought to the museum on 4 weekends weekends (Saturday & Sunday) between 8:00 am to 12 noon starting August 1 through September 13.  A volunteer will be on site to accept your donation at these times only and will give you an in-kind donation receipt you may use for tax purposes.  Arrangements can be made after August 15th to have large items like pieces of furniture picked up at your location by calling Dennis Buscher at (916) 479-2158.
