Following a summer break, the Riverbank Historical Society will resume its regular meetings, but with a change in schedule.

According to President Craig Ethier, regular membership meetings will move from the first Saturday of the month to the first Thursday, with this fall’s first meeting scheduled at 9 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 8. Ethier said there will be updates on the museum expansion project as well as future fundraising efforts.

The board of directors still meets on the last Tuesday of the month, he said.

Ethier also mentioned that the first Memories Day of the new year will be held on the first Thursday of October, Oct. 6, following the membership meeting, at 10 a.m.

This presentation will be on the Yokut Tribe of local Native Americans. It will be presented by Buck Buckner of Modesto, formerly a teacher in Riverbank schools, Ethier said. Buckner’s mother also was a Riverbank teacher, he added.

Volunteers from the Riverbank Historical Society open the museum from 10 a.m. to noon on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays.

The museum is at 3237 Santa Fe St., downtown Riverbank, adjacent to City Hall North on Third Street.
