President’s Message – October, 2012
Island Day: Sunday September 30th from 1-5.
A huge thanks to Darlene and Leslie Bright, Demetria and Phil Sapinza, Cheri McNeill, Paul Slebodnik, Susan Foy, Rodney Jones, and Cindy Clark for their time to make this event a success.
We’re also planing a Coffee/breakfast, and hot dogs and drinks sale for Saturday November 3 from 9-1. Four years ago, we just happened to be having a barbeque sale the last day of early voting and “made a killing.” Please consider volunteering to help out with this project. We will need people to “bake” cookies to sell as well as people to work the sale table.
Monthly Meeting Report – September, 2012
Mary Beth Springmeier, Executive Director, Chris Webb, President, and Kim Gottshall, Chair of the Lens Restoration Committee of the Old Baldy Foundation joined us to tell the fascinating history of the Cape Fear Lighthouse and it’s “lost” lens.
They told the story of how they are bringing the first order Fresnel lens prisms back to Bald Head Island, and asked us to help “get the word out” to old timers who might have bought one from Labriolas Antique Shop on Oleander Dr.
