Society Notes – Nov. 2013

Society Notes
Darlene Bright, History Center Director

  • Please keep long time member Mike Coleman and his family in your thoughts and prayers. Mike’s mother, Dixie Coleman, passed away November 2. She will be missed by all who knew her.
  • This month we recorded 28 members at our October meeting. The History Center recorded 73 visitors! The gift shop took in $144.00. The History Center was used by Got-‘em-on Live and The Fort Fisher Chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy.
  • Thanks to Sylvia Snook, Darlene Bright, Elaine Henson, Ron Griffin, and Pat Bolander for keeping the History Center open while Rebecca was off!
  • Thanks to our History Center Volunteers Carl Filipiak and Ron Griffin for working on the cataloging of the subject files. That project is finally beginning to move ahead.
  • Work on the new web site is underway. A huge thanks to Andre’ Blouin for helping design, set up and teach us how to maintain this much needed upgrade.
  • Newsletter: Thanks to Cheri McNeill for her always thorough proofing of the newsletter and Lois Taylor for her help getting the Newsletter in the mail.
  • A big thanks to Wilmington Water Tours for their donation of 20% of the ticket price of tours booked through the History Center. We received a check for $105.00 from them in October.
