Come Celebrate History & NYSCSS Local Councils!


We're celebrating New York State local Social Studies Councils with a reception & presentation on the prohibition era at the 518 Speakeasy, where you can learn about this important time period in a cozy & sophisticated throwback club to a bygone era.

You'll have an opportunity to connect with members from your local council & others around the state, while hearing a talk about Prohibition and the 18th Amendment. All attendees will be entered into basket raffles from our councils, sample hors d'oeuvres, and take part in a round of Speakeasy Trivia. Get ready to have a wonderful evening!
