Society Notes – May, 2021

By: Darlene Bright, History Center Director

  • Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of longtime Society member Deborah Hockenbury, who passed away on May 4 after a long illness.
  • The History Center had ­­­­­­­­­­­­­64 visitors. The UDC held their monthly meeting at the History Center.
  • Welcome to new members: Brent Byerly of Thomasville, Kelli Weeks of Carolina Beach, John Smith & Jennifer Cameron of Carolina Beach, and Dan Cookinham of Carolina Beach.


The Exhibit Committee is working to “spiff up” some of our exhibits. We desperately need someone to build us a scale model of the original Swing Bridge!

We’d also like to do an exhibit on the Federal Point Lighthouse but need someone who can build us a model of the 3rd lighthouse, the one that was a two story house with a light on top. We can provide photos of both.
