Northborough – The Northborough Historical Society will hold its monthly meeting Friday, Oct. 21, at 7:30 p.m.

The discussion will cover President Truman and the perilous conditions he encountered throughout his eight years in office, the major events and challenges of his presidency, and the important decisions he would make.
