Western Maryland Chapter - ASM


   Welcome to the Western Maryland Chapter

                                    of the Archeological Society of MD, Inc.




Our Next Event:
January 22, 7:30 PM Cancelled Due to Weather
Rescheduled for: February 26, 7:30 PM
LaVale Library


           Our first meeting of 2016 will be our traditional SHOW & TELL, folks are invited to bring in their latest acquisitions, an artifact, geofact, fossil, an article or book, report on an interesting site you have visited or whatever you think maybe of interest to the membership.

            In addition we will hold a SILENT AUCTION. We are asking you to bring a donated item with a recommended minimum price for the membership to bid on throughout the evening. We hope to raise funds towards the purchase of a new laptop to use with our power point projector. Items could include an antique, crafts, artwork, books, baked goods, services, a re-gifted Christmas gift, fossils and gem stones, just use your imagination!

            So, come to our January meeting with an item to show and a donation for the auction, lots of cash, your checkbook (we don’t accept Visa or Master Card) and plan to go home with something neat you can use and enjoy while helping the Chapter treasury.

                                                                    Join us on this fun evening and bring a friend.

The Western Maryland Chapter of the Archeological Society of Maryland was established to educate and encourage amateur archeologists by conducting field sessions, weekend digs and hosting guest speakers on a wide range of archeological topics. Projects such as the excavation of the Late Woodland sites in Cresaptown and Barton's in Allegany County and Sang Run in Garrett County have created a growing interest in our local cultural resources.
