Because the Chula Vista Civic Center Branch Library decided in mid-year to close on Fridays and Saturdays, the Society had to move its Saturday programs off-campus, and Fredericka Manor volunteered their auditorium and dining room to host two Saturday programs that benefited both CVGS and Fredericka.

Looking back on the year, this little society of ours had many quality programs - some of them "first-run, never before seen by a genealogy audience" and three were presented by society members, as were the two Saturday seminars.
