Darlene Bright, History Center Director
- The History Center recorded 50 visitors in February. We had 50 in attendance at the February meeting. The gift shop took $363.55 in February. The cookbook continues to sell at a steady pace. The History Center was also used by Got-‘em-on Live Bait Fishing Club and the UDC-Fort Fisher Chapter, and the Committee for the Carolina Beach Walk of Fame.
- Special thanks go out to Rick Both who has been diligently clearing brush on the Sugar Loaf Line of Defense throughout the winter. The Sugar Loaf Earthworks Preservation Group held a ‘planning’ meeting on Thursday March 5 and a “work day” Saturday March 7.
