Anne Gray and Greg Halpin will teach us about the inner-workings of Wikipedia – The purpose of the site, how the editing process works, and, most importantly, how to edit existing articles and create new articles. As researchers, we hone our skills, becoming experts with our countless hours of reading. As writers, we transform our knowledge into digestible bits for others to consume.

The ALLVETS meets the fourth Wednesday of each month at 7:00pm at the Historical Society Museum, 250 E. Market St., York. Occasionally, special round tables are held on Saturdays. Due to the holiday schedule, no programs are held in November or December. Meetings are FREE and open to the public.

ALLVETS Roundtable is an opportunity for local veterans to share their stories about their military service. All veterans are welcome to participate, regardless of branch of service, rank, peace-time or war-time service, or role in the military. Veterans wishing to speak at the Roundtable should contact ALLVETS at AllVets1York@gmail.com to schedule a session.
