An Update on Spring Programs

The ongoing spread of Covid-19 has presented us all with new challenges. We are committed to the health and safety of our members, friends, speakers, and staff and, with that in mind, we have cancelled all of our in-person Spring programs. We are putting together online lectures and have emailed information about them to our programs email list. If you would like to added to our email list, please write to

Your loyalty to Royal Oak, and to our commitment to the mission of The National Trust remains paramount to us, especially during times of global unease. We hope you are safe and taking care of your loved ones and we look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.
