WINSLOW, Ariz. - The Winslow Historical Society (WHS) will host its annual meeting 6-8 p.m. today. All are invited to this free event at the Winslow Visitors Center, located in the former Hubbell Trading Post at 523 W. Second St.

Whether you are currently a WHS member or would simply like to find out more about

membership benefits and museum activities, join the group at 6 p.m. for 45 minutes of heavy hors d'oeuvres and socializing, followed by the annual meeting of the membership.

Current WHS members will vote on new directors of the board, as well as a bylaws change related to membership levels. Old Trails Museum Director Ann-Mary Lutzick will also present a brief update on museum plans and activities including Second Saturdays in Winslow, WHS's year-long series of programs that explore Winslow's diverse history in celebration of the Arizona State Centennial on Feb. 14.
