The Greater Toledo Civil War Roundtable meets on the second Thursday of each month at the NAVARRE PARK SHELTER HOUSE, located on White Street, just off Navarre Road at Navarre Park in Toledo, Ohio. Meetings start at 7:30 pm, with the doors opening around 7:00 pm. The Roundtable provides refreshments such as coffee, tea and cookies.
Our usual format is to start off the evening with a short business meeting. Following that, we have our monthly trivia questions and raffle (tickets are purchased before the meeting starts.) After a short break, we proceed to the evening's program.
The program portion of the meeting follows next, and usually is one of the following formats:
Meetings normally adjourn by 9:30 pm.
Want still more Civil War? If meeting once a month does not satisfy your craving for thing Civil War, try our Luncheon Meetings. The GTCWRT's "Lunch Bunch" meets on the last Tuesday of each month at Uncle John's Pancake House, 3131 Secor Road at Central Avenue, across from the Westgate Shopping Center. Starting time is noon. Uncle John's Pancake House offers a variety of foods--including breakfast served any time of the day--at a moderate price. After enjoying a tasty meal our members take turns putting together short, informal presentations.
The Lunch Bunch gatherings are smaller and more intimate than our regular meetings. Luncheon programs cover a wide variety of subjects -- from the nutritional make-up of a soldier's diet, Civil War poetry, ancestors' stories, famous-named generals and ordinary soldiers, and more.
