SFBA Chapter

A meeting of the Huguenot Society of California was held March 25, 1982 to discuss re-organizing the Society into a State Society and two chapters, there being approximately the same number of members living in Southern California and the San Francisco Bay Area.

The chapter meets twice a year: in spring during the month of April, and in fall during the month of October.

Interested prospective members may contact President Shirley J. Williams via email at  sjwmsnels@aol.com.
