Calendar and Events

Upcoming Events

September 27  7– 9 PM

We start off by hosting Boise’s David Habben who describes himself as a “taphophile.” That’s a wondrous word — based on the Greek word for burial —

that means a lover of cemeteries, or, as some might say, a “tombstone tourist.”  David ranks well beyond tourist. He’s become a self-taught photographer

and expert in cemetery lore, history and grave marker symbols. He has given presentations to genealogy groups and spoken at family history conferences

in Idaho and Oregon.

The topic for this night is cemetery history and symbolism, “Carved in Stone,” 

October 19 7- 8 PM

Quarterly Family History Consultant and High Priest meeting. This is held in the Meridian Amity Stake Center's high council room
