Welcome! The Galway Preservation Society encourages the awareness & preservation of the history of the Town of Galway, NY.

The Galway Preservation Society will meet on December 7, 2015. Bring your memories and perhaps a memento of Christmas past to the December 7 meeting of the Galway Preservation Society.  All are invited to come share – or just hear – a story about a special Christmas, and also to bring along an ornament, special gift or other Christmas momento to show to the audience.

Meetings are held at the Galway Town Hall, beginning at 7 p.m. with a social time and refreshments. A business meeting follows at 7:30, and the program starts at approximately 7:45. The public is invited to attend.

It’s time to renew your membership! Download the 2015-2016 membership form and send in your $10 annual dues by October 15, 2015. We welcome new members at all times.
