New benefit for members!
Our newsletters are currently mailed to members three times per year (March, July and November). The newsletter contains four pages including scholarly articles, event information and either "Tales from the Crypt" or "What's in the Attic?". The public has the capability to read our newsletters online, but beginning with our next newsletter, there will be a bonus article in each newsletter which are mailed only to members. The upcoming edition will include a piece about what Norwich was like when it was awarded the "Christmas City" pre-WWII! Become a member today to receive these bonus articles.
