Church. The cost is $40 per guest. Live music by the Michael Kitchen Band, with dancing, heavy hors d'oeuvres, and BYOB. Tickets are limited, so order yours today!

All members of the Lebanon County Branch of the NAACP are cordially invited to attend our general membership meetings at 7:00 pm of the first Thursday of each month — which means that our next regular general membership meeting is slated for 7 pm Thursday, March 2, 2023. For four of our 2023 general membership meetings — Jan. 5, April 6, July 6, and Oct. 5 — we will meet in person in the basement of the Christ Church, United Church of Christ, 200 S. White Oak St., Annville, PA. For the other eight months of 2023, we will meet virtually on Zoom. Before each meeting, Branch members will be emailed a reminder and invitation, the meeting agenda, and the draft minutes of the previous month's meeting — and the Zoom link when we'll be meeting remotely — all of which will also be available in our shared Google Drive folder. All members are invited to suggest additional agenda items.
Our Black History Month Planning Committee is currently developing plans for celebrating Black History Month 2023 here in Lebanon County. Most notably, we are planning to join in the unveiling of an African American Heritage Trail Driving Tour, being developed in collaboration with the Lebanon County Historical Society, Visit Lebanon Valley, St. John AME Church, and other groups & organizations. Plans are still developing, so please be in touch if you are interested in helping us to plan events for Black History Month 2023!
