Society Notes – Sept, 2016

By Darlene Bright, History Center Director

DONATION! Thanks to Jane Albers for the donation of framed images of Hurricanes Bertha, Fran, Bonnie, Dennis, Floyd and Irene. They are a great addition to the Burnett Cottage Hurricane Hazel pictures.

Welcome to new members Gerry Clonaris of Charlotte, Debra and Garth Bowling of LaPlata, MD, Sandra Shugart of Winston-Salem, Joan Dunn of Wilmington, and Barbara and Michael McQuery of Carolina Beach. WOW!

The History Center recorded 167 visitors in August. That is even higher than last month, and now the highest month in our records. We had 34 in attendance at the August Meeting. The gift shop took in $396.50.

The History Center was used by Got-Em-On Live Bait Fishing Club.

Thanks to our active volunteers this month; Darlene Bright, Andre Blouin, Tony Phillips, and Jim Kohler for helping Cheri with the August newsletter. Thanks to Steve Arthur and Mary Ann Targonski for the refreshments at the August meeting.

We need “old” photos! — We’re working on enlarging our photo collection.

Do you have photos that document “the way things were?”

We would love to scan and archive a copy.  Lend them to us for a few weeks and we’ll scan them, and give them back to you, and share a digital copy with you if you want one.

We need pictures of buildings, people and events that have taken place in Federal Point from the 1920s to the 1970s.
