Upcoming Programs

Join the St. Clair Historical Museum and Research Center staff on May 19th or 20th for “The Dynamic Dozen.” The Museum’s master historian Charles Homberg will entertain and inform you with the backstory of twelve major events and activities that dramatically changed the City of St. Clair. Follow him through more than 250 years of St. Clair history for the events that shaped the city and made it what it is today.

The program will delight and in some cases surprise you with both well-known and obscure events and people that dramatically changed the face of St. Clair. The program will be presented on Thursday, May 19th at 7 PM and repeated on Friday, May 20th at 1 PM in the Community Room of the St. Clair Museum Building. You will have a chance to earn a prize by naming 9 or more of “The Dynamic Dozen” correctly.

Refreshments will be served. Donation is $5; students are free. The Museum will be open to the public after each presentation.
