Coffee and Conversation with Gary KlingWe are now resuming our Coffee and Conversation events. To make up for the months we missed due to the pandemic, we are holding a Coffee and Conversation (C&C) event nearly every Saturday this fall.

Please join us from 9-11 a.m. for an informal presentation about a military conflict, branch or event.  Come early to ensure your spot and to enjoy light refreshments. 

COVID-19 Notice: In order to help protect your health during this pandemic, we are following state and local guidelines and will be limiting the number of people in the main presentation room. However, we will be streaming the presentation live in our library and in one of our exhibit rooms upstairs. Everyone entering the museum is required to wear a mask.

C&C is Now Live Streaming!

If you can’t attend a C&C in person, you can view each presentation live from home via the live stream on our YouTube channel. Simply go to our YouTube channel and look for the live stream video at 9 a.m. on any C&C scheduled Saturday.
