History isn’t so much about remembering “the Good Old days.” If you really study and contemplate, you’ll often gain a greater appreciation for today! (Never a bad thing to increase our gratitude, I think!) One of the best (and FREE) ways to connect with our local history is through the Monroe County History Club. On this episode of At Home in Bloomington, we talk with Michael Carter about the origins of the club, what’s involved to be a member (nothing but showing up and maybe eating lunch!), how you can catch up on presentations you’ve missed and what the future holds for remembering the past.
We also throwback to At Home in Bloomington Episode 33, the Monroe County History Center. The opportunities with the History Center often go hand in hand with the History Club, though they are two separate entities. But like many groups and organizations in Bloomington, they see the value in collaborating and supporting each other. And in our REAL-List segment, we give you a high level overview of how a lender comes up with how much house you can afford. No calculators needed!
