Society Notes

    By Darlene Bright, History Center Director


  • Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of Lynn Benson, who passed away recently. Lynn was a founding member of our Society, which formed in March, 1994.  Lynn served as an Officer and Board member through 2006.  She had a keen interest in local history and genealogy. She was a very active member of the Daughters of the American Revolution.  Lynn will be missed by all.


  • Our thoughts and prayers go out to Sandy Jackson and family. Claude Jackson, Sandy’s father, passed away recently. Sandy is a long-time member who now lives in Florissant, Missouri.


  • The History Center recorded 74 visitors in January. There were 56 people in attendance at the January meeting. The History Center was used by the Got-Em-On Live Bait Club, the United Daughters of the Confederacy (UDC) and Step Up For Soldiers.


  • Welcome to new members, Sandy Gladden, of Carolina Beach and Lynn and Steffany Wellborn of Wilmington.
