Superstitions, Charms & Luck

Monday, Ocotber 28, 2019 at 7:00 p.m.

Halloween is fast approaching, and our October program will recognize the season by taking a look at various superstitions, charms, and other traditional beliefs for both good and bad luck.  We will start off with Orange County's only known witchcraft accusation, mention a few local ghost stories, mix in a few once-common beliefs (some with roots going back hundreds or even thousands of years), and then open the program to audience participation.  So please come supplied with some of your own stories, legends, and good-luck charms or other artifacts to share (these don't need to have an Orange County connection), and plan to join us on the 28th.

  The meeting will be held at our Research Center at 130 Caroline Street and is free and open to the public.  Refreshments will be served at 7:00 p.m., with the program to follow at 7:30 p.m..
