Monthly Meeting Report – January, 2014

Island GazetteWe had quite a crowd at our January meeting for the program presented by Jasmine McKee who has worked for the Island Gazette for 10 years. Many people said they learned a lot about the history of the Island Gazette Newspaper and the family who owns it.

Island Gazette - Hurricane BerthaFounded in 1978 the paper has chronicled the biggest stories of the past 40 years that the paper has covered, from Hurricanes in the ‘80’s and ‘90’s, to fights about development and the struggles of the business owners on the Boardwalk to attract tourists back to their establishments.

It’s amazing how much history has happened in the last 40 years in this little corner of the County.
