A huge thanks to the Town of Carolina Beach for putting a new roof on the History Center!  We feel a lot saver facing Hurricane season with a nice tight “lid” on our archives.

•    Thanks to Henry Capillary Jr. we now have a good collection of pictures and documents on “Cappy” another of our Island’s unique and memorable characters.

•    New Members. Welcome to Becky and Tom Cook of Carolina Beach and Emily Perkins of Mebane.

•    Thanks to Elaine Henson and Pat Bolander for keeping the History Center open while Rebecca was on vacation!
