  • Introducing the Plan, Monday, February 2, 2-3:30pm  
  • Inspiration and Perspiration, Monday, February 9, 2-3:30pm
  • Columbia Gets the Go-Ahead, February 16Monday, 2-3:30pm
All sessions will be held at Slayton House, located at 10400 Cross Fox Lane in Wilde Lake Village Center.

Columbia Archives, a service of Columbia Association (CA), collects and preserves the history of Columbia.
