Society Notes – April, 2016

By Darlene Bright, History Center Director

The History Center recorded 90 visitors in March. We had 40 in attendance at the March meeting and 45 who took the Sugar Loaf walk with Chris Fonvielle and Leslie Bright on March 12. The gift shop took in $401.97 in March which isn’t a record, but is the best we’ve done since last fall. The History Center was used by Got-Em-On Live Bait Fishing Club and the United Daughters of the Confederacy for their monthly meetings.

Membership continues to grow. Welcome to Geraldine and Gerald Cohen of Wilmington and Ann Tinder of Wilmington.

WWI #2

Knowing that 2017 is the 100th anniversary of the United States entering World War I, we would like to do a temporary exhibit featuring those who fought and those who manned the home front.

We’re looking for pictures, letters, uniforms, or artifacts.  Please let us know if you would allow us to borrow your family treasures for about 6 months.
