Society Notes – March, 2016

By Darlene Bright, History Center Director

  • The History Center recorded 67 visitors in January. We had 45 in attendance at the February meeting. The gift shop took in $56.99 in February. The History Center was used by Got-Em-On Live Bait Fishing Club and the United Daughters of the Confederacy for their monthly meetings.


  • Have you seen our new “look”? A huge thanks to Skip Henson, Andre’ Blouin, and Vic Alocci for their  TWO long days of prepping and painting.  We’re still waiting for new landscaping and outdoor electrical work but before long NOBODY will be able to say they never noticed our building.


  • Membership continues to grow. Welcome to Ann Boseman of Wilmington, Alfred and Dolores Anderson of Carolina Beach and the Jeffrey Stauffer Family also of Carolina Beach.  A big thanks to John Pinna for renewing as a Lifetime Member.


 WWI #2Knowing 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.
