• August Meeting – Memories of Summer – Panel Discussion

     

    The Federal Point Historic Preservation Society will hold its monthly meeting on Monday, August 20, 7:30 pm at the Federal Point History Center, 1121-A North Lake Park Blvd., adjacent to Carolina Beach Town Hall.

    Our program this month is entitled “Memories of Summer; Growing Up on the Boardwalk.” 

    Elaine Henson will run the projector and moderate stories from our long time members as they remember their teenage years.  Dancing, eating, playing, and working.

    Join us for this unique oral history program which will include innumerable stories from the 1940s to the 1960s.
