Upcoming Events

PGS in-person classes and interest groups held at the Largo Public Library have been cancelled until further notice.

We have taken this precaution with the well-being of our members, patrons, and friends in mind.


These are all free and open to the public. Go to the calendar  tab on this Blog Home Page to  see the complete schedule of events as well as instructions on how to participate in them.

Selected events are recorded and are also available on the PGS website. You can find them in two places. First, mouse over the “Research” tab or the "Calendar" tab found at the top of the home page and select the “Meeting Recordings and Handouts” option from the drop-down menu. Those videos are free for all to view.

They are eventually moved to our Members Only pages after about one month. To access them, sign into the website as a member and navigate to the “Members Only Content” tab. The members pages also give you handouts to all of our classes.

This is a rapidly changing situation and we are learning as we go, so be patient. We will reach out to you using our website, this Blog, and our weekly emails to give you information on the events we are offering and the venues we will use.

Our goal is to reach out to our members and friends to provide some useful information, research assistance, and perhaps even some fun during this period of uncertainty and stress.
